Annatto or Achiote Seed is brick-red with a slightly bitter, earthy flavor and imparts a rich yellowish-orange color in Caribbean, Latin American and Filipino cuisines. It has been dubbed the "poor man's saffron" as the color is similar to the more expensive seasoning. Available whole or ground, the small triangular shaped seeds are used as both a spice and as a natural coloring in butter, rice, smoked fish and cheeses

Annatto Seeds are collected from a small tropical tree native to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Central and South American natives use the seeds to make body paint and lipstick. The heart-shaped fruit are brown or reddish brown at maturity, and are covered with short, stiff hairsWhen fully mature, the fruit splits open, exposing the numerous dark red seeds.The fruit itself is not edible, however the orange-red pulp that covers the seed is used to produce a yellow to orange food coloring
