I have recently been told of a Christmas Saffron Tradition and would love to hear from any reader in any area whether they have knowledge of same and perhaps can expand it a little.
It seems that in certain areas at Christmastime the lady of the house would make special saffron buns. They would start off as a normal bun the a smaller piece of the uncooked mixture was rolled into a ball and pressed onto the top of the original bun; and I believe it was called a Christmas Bun (most original).
Any acknowledgements either through our Webmaster Tony Mansell or directly to myself at: email@example.com or Downside, Casterills Road, Helston. TR13 8BJ Thank you.
