Word Of The Day: Annatto

It's a porcupine! It's a strawberry! No, it's annatto!

Annatto is a reddish-yellow food coloring extracted from the prickly seed pods of – surprise – the annatto tree. Also known as roucou, the all-natural strawberry-like seed pod colors an assortment of foods such as cheese, butter, rice, popcorn and chicken. And not just any ordinary chicken, but the toothsome tandoori. Enjoy!
