Recipe Name: Aceite O Manteca De Achiote (annato Oil Or Lara) Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Cup(s) Oil, vegetable
1/2 Cup(s) Annatto seeds
Heat the oil in a small saucepan, add the seeds and cook over low heat
for about 5 minutes, stirring from time to time, until a rich orange
color is obtained. Cool, strain and store in a covered jar in the
refrigerator. It will keep for several months. If the seeds are cooked
too long, the orange color will change to a golden color and much of
the flavor is lost. Very stale seeds will give off all their color in
one minute of cooking. Watch the saucepan carefully and remove it from
the heat immediately the color begins to lighten. MM and upload by / CBCC File
