DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil and annatto seeds in a small skillet over medium heat just until the seeds give off a lively, steady sizzle.
  • Don't overheat the mixture or the seeds will turn black and the oil a nasty green.
  • Once they're sizzling away, pull the pan from the heat and let stand until the sizzling stops.
  • Strain off as much of the oil as you are going to use right away; store the rest for up to 4 days at room temperature in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
