Annato oil* annato seeds are achiote seeds. The seeds are simmered in oil
to extract the orange yellow color used in many Hispanic dishes. The
colored oil may color grains, pastries , vegetables or even add a golden
yellow color as a poultry baste. to make oil: Bring 1 cup oil ( I use olive
) with 1/2 cup annato seeds to almost a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. Strain oil
and cool and refrigerate. Use about 1 to 2 tsp in rice dishes.Annato tends
to be bitter, so use sparingly. In small amounts no bitter taste is
noticed. Of course tumeric and curry do color and flavor but yuou may like
to try this for a pleasant change. Note: annato really stains, so be
careful not to spill it !
