As a spice, it's kind of red, but it sure turns your food yellow! And as a color name, "saffron" is distinctly yellow.

Saffron is more orange/yellow than it is red.
Level 55
Mar 21, 2016
Saffron itself is red/orange-ish red (Wikipedia calls it "crimson", which may or may not be helpful!) by itself. I've seen/used dark red to light orangey-red, but never seen saffron itself being pure orange or yellow (though there may be different varieties with different availabilities in different countries). As someone above noted, it does TURN things yellow--rice, chicken, your cutting board, your hands...

For "Stiff", what scenarios would a tip be expected? Isn't the point of a tip that it's a gratuity? (Never heard this term so looking for answers)
Level 76

Without entering into the merits and demerits of tip-based employment, most people working in the service industry in the USA are legally hired with a base pay significantly lower than the mandated minimum wage, with the expectation that tips will make up the difference, and that having a significant portion of their pay dependent on tips would motivate them to provide better service. Therefore, rather than being a generous but optional token of appreciation, tipping is commonly expected and deeply embedded into the culture; a 15 to 20% tip is considered standard. To tip much less than that, or not at all, would be seen as inconsiderate and rude, and you would be "stiffing" the worker.
