Achiote

Ingredients:
1 cup achiote seeds
2 cups oil

Directions:
Mix oil and seeds together in a small saucepan.
Heat over medium heat until seeds start to bubble.
Simmer over heat for 5-10 minutes or until oil turns to a deep reddish color.  
Don't heat for too long otherwise seeds will turn black and you will end up with a oil that
is green instead.
Cool, strain, discard seeds, store oil.
