Annatto seeds are small seeds grown on trees originating from South America. They are used mainly for colouring, as they have very little flavour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250ml vegetable or canola oil
1 tablespoon annatto seeds

Method

  1. Put the oil and annatto seeds in a saucepan and gently heat for 1 hour, until the oil takes on a deep red colour. Do not allow the oil to boil or become too hot, or it will taste bitter.
  2. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Strain the oil through a fine sieve and discard the annatto seeds.
  3. Store the oil in a sealed jar for up to 4 weeks.
