Spaghetti with Jasmine, Saffron, Chamomile & Calendula

1 tbsp. dried jasmine buds
1 tsp. honey
2 pinches saffron  or more as needed salt
2 unsalted butter
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. dried chamomile flowers
2 tbsp. yellow cornmeal
1 lb. spaghetti
2 tsp. dried calendula


In a medium saucepan, bring 1/4 cups of water to a boil.  Add jasmine flowers.  Let stand 10 minutes.  Strain the jasmine, then mix in the honey, saffron and a pinch of salt.  In a small saucepan over low heat, add the butter and heat until melted and hot.  Add the dried chamomile and stir for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, in a medium dry pan over medium heat, add the cornflour and 1-2 teaspoons of salt.  Stir for about 10 minutes, until crisp.  Boil a large pot of water and add salt.  Pour jasmine flower juice into another large saucepan.  Cook the pasta in boiling water for about 5 minutes until it is slightly soft. Using a strainer, strain the pasta and keep the pasta water, then add the pasta to the jasmine liquid.  Pour the pasta on a plate and add three-quarters of the chamomile butter.  Season the pasta with salt.

Finally sprinkle with the cornmeal, calendula powder and chamomile flowers. You can add remaining butter to the pasta.
