Zaffron, also known as azafran or osfer, are actually the threads of the safflower plant and serve as a common alternative to the expensive threads of the crocus flower, saffron. It does not have the same flavor as saffron, but it will color foods in a similar way.

You can typically find these threads in Mexican stores as well as Middle Eastern or Mediterranean markets in the spice section.
