ACHIOTE PASTE

    Achiote Paste

    To make achiote paste from annatto seeds, soak them in water for at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours; drain them, and grind them in a spice grinder or blender. Tightly wrapped, it will keep for months at room temperature.

    As the cooking liquid can permanently stain clothing and walls, the paste form of achiote is suggested for use.
