Hey Kurma, keep up the good work – your blog is an inspiration. Was wondering if you can help. I was shopping yesterday and bought some annatto seeds. What on earth are they and what do I do with them?

My reply:

Hello Pixie. Annatto is used both as a spice and a dyestuff. It may be better known to Mexican and Latin markets as achiote or in the Philippines as atsuwete or achuete.

Here’s lots more information, plus a recipe.
