Arancini

I don’t remember having arancini as a kid.  My mom tells me that she only ever made them once or twice.  I do remember that the few times I did have them, usually as an hors d’oeuvres at an event, they were an absolutely rare and delicious treat.  I’ve always wanted to try making them myself.  For the longest time I’ve thought about making them with saffron.  There is something about how the saffron infuses the risotto that seems just perfect for this dish.  Recently, one of our Instagram favorites, The Heirloom Chronicle, posted a picture of her arancini.  Weeks later she posted another photo of her arancini, having frozen a portion of the original batch so that she could easily make them again.  This taught me two things:  1. I could no longer wait to try my hand at arancini and 2. they’re freezable!  I hope you enjoy this recipe and also take the liberty to change around the seasonings and swap out the accent ingredients for ones that you love best.
