Annatto Seed

This little seed pod has a colorful history as a paint and fabric dye, responsible for the vibrant hues in Mexican art as early as the 16th century. The fruit of the achiote tree has a mild earthy, peppery flavor. It’s long been a staple in Mexican, Venezuelan and Colombian cuisines, and is a great option for brightening up dishes like tikka masala and cochinita pibil, and generally pairs well with mild meats and starches. (It’s also often used in tamales.) Product is currently backordered. We're working to replenish stock and will ship as soon as possible! Product is currently backordered.
