Tasty Notes From SpiceRally…
- We have included salt in our recipe, but if you think you don’t need salt in yours, go ahead and omit it.
- If you cannot find ground annatto, you can substitute it with equal amounts of ground turmeric powder. But we highly recommend annatto in this recipe, and you should expect color and flavor differences if you are using turmeric.
- You can also use a teaspoon of paprika of your choice as an additional ingredient.
- Make sure you use new spices and herbs so that this seasoning will have its freshness and aroma for up to one to two months.
