Annatto Oil
What You Need:
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup annatto (achiote) seeds

  • How To Cook:
    1. Pour the oil into a small saucepan or skillet and heat it over moderate heat until a light haze forms above it.

    2. Stir in the annatto seeds and, when they are evenly coated with oil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for about 1 minute.

    3. Remove the pan from the heat, uncover, and let the oil cool to room temperature.

    4. Strain the annatto oil into a jar, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate it until ready to use. Discard the seeds.

    5. Annatto oil will keep for several months, but its flavor and color will diminish with age.

    6. The oil is used to give a reddish-orange color and a mild flavor to meat, poultry and seafood sauces in many Caribbean islands as well as in Latin America.

    To Make: about ½ cup
