Safron versus Azafran

A food revelation of a very small character.

For years, I've purchased, in Mexico, Vinagre de Yema and could never get a sense of what it was used for. How it was different from white or distilled, wine or cider vinegar, all of which are found in Mexico. It dawned on me that this is a supposed copy of Sherry Vinegar in much the same way that safflower is called azafran in Mexico, factitious safron.
