How to Make Annatto Oil (Achiote)

Heat 1 cup vegetable or olive oil in small heavy saucepan or skillet on medium heat. Add 1/4 cup annatto (achiote) seeds (available at Hispanic markets or spice stores); cook 5 min., keeping oil below the boiling point and stirring seeds occasionally. Remove from heat. Cool 1 hour or until mixture turns a deep orange color. Strain into a glass jar; discard seeds. Cover and store oil in refrigerator for up to 1 month.


Substitute 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro for the recao leaves.
