Ground annatto seed is a culinary gem that brings vibrant color and a mild, earthy flavor to a wide array of dishes. Derived from the seeds of the annatto plant (Bixa orellana), this spice is known for its use in traditional Latin American and Caribbean cuisines. As the seeds are ground into a fine powder, they release a warm and slightly peppery essence, adding both visual appeal and a subtle depth of flavor to your culinary creations.
Commonly used in Latin American dishes like achiote paste or as a seasoning for meats, ground annatto seed adds a layer of authenticity and a touch of warmth to your culinary repertoire.
