- Annato Seed Cello (Pack of 12)
Just the right amount
I know you can buy these in bulk for cheap but I don’t like to scoop the seeds out then try to figure out if they’re too much or too little. If your cooking with annato seeds for the first time just be aware that it has some bitterness to it you can counter it with some sugar but that might change the flavor of your food.

So I don’t know if this is “good” or “bad” annato seed. I just know I can’t buy it locally, so got it here.
