Annatto seed is a fascinating plant with a long history of human use. Long used in Mexican and Latin foods as a spice. Various spices are mixed and mashed together with the seeds to make a paste which is used throughout Central America. It is also used in some Asian cuisines such as Vietnamese and Filipino. In the west it has been used as a natural food colorant to color all sorts of foods. Perhaps you have wondered why some cheeses are orange?
