    Rita~'s Note:

    Also called Achiote Oil. Annatto seed (poor man's saffron) is used to color food. It's from South America. The golden-yellow oil is used to fry or marinade vegetables or meat. Which results in a bright orange surface. In Vietnam, batters are often prepared with annatto oil to achieve a more attractive color.

      I made this as a component of A Golden Chicken. Simple to make, and can be used as part of so many other recipes. Very nice color, too. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4
