This seed is indigenous to Latin and South America. It’s known for its intense color, which food companies take advantage of to provide that familiar color in cheeses, butter and margarine. The flavor is described as being slightly peppery, earthy, and musky. You can steep the seeds in oil, grind it to form a powder, or make achiote paste, which can be used as a rub for seafood and poultry.
