The yellow or orange petals can be dried and used as fake saffron, or used fresh to brighten up a mixed leaf salad. cheap saffron that you buy in some arab markets is actually dried calendula petals. you get the colour but not the glorious fragrance of saffron. if you are colouring rice to go with a curry, real saffron would be wasted.
