Annatto Seed (Whole)

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 1 review

Used primarily as a natural red food colouring, annatto seed appears most commonly in South and Central American cookery, such as in achiote paste and adobo. Add its soft lemon-peppery taste and mint tones to seafood and meats, vegetables and rice.

Simmer ½ tsp of annatto seed and 2 tbsp of water or oil for a few minutes to make a red liquid colouring that can be stored for up to 12 months.

A natural food colouring

Ground into a fine powder, it is used in the marinade for Tandoori Chicken and Pollo Asado and any other dish that requires a red colour to be added to it. It also has a very light, fresh mint aroma which is really lovely.
