Achiote Seeds 90g

Brilliant red seeds with an earthy, woody flavor and vibrant colour.

Harvested from the annatto tree, achiote seeds (‘poor man’s saffron’) are often ground into a paste which is a key ingredient in pork pibil, a traditional recipe from the Yucatán in south-eastern México.


  • Origin

    Mexico
  • Serving Suggestion

    For yellow rice, add a teaspoon of Achiote Seeds to a little oil and gently fry until it turns orange. Remove seeds, then fry onions and garlic before adding rice and water and cooking as per the rice packet instructions.

  • Preparation

    Grind soaked seeds with garlic, vinegar, Mexican oregano and salt to make a paste. Loosen with orange and lime juice and use to marinate meat or fish. Warning! Stains everything red.
