Default Ping: aem &/or piedmont - re paella recipe posted by piedmont

I couldn't find any annatto seeds at the supermarkets but did find
*ground* annatto seeds in the hispanic market near me. Does that
substitute for the paprika? Do I mix the ground annatto with oil to
color the oil? If so, how much and for how long? Does it have to be
strained out of the oil or will it dissolve?

IMWTK.
Thanks.

I've never used ground annatto. Can it still be strained out with a
strainer or will it all slip through?

substitute for the paprika?


I think the paprika is there for taste, so no. But if it's for color,
yes. How's that for help?

I put about 2 TB of the seeds into about 1/4 cup barely simmering
olive oil for a few minutes to steep. How well the ground stuff can
be strained would be the question. I don't believe it dissolves, but
don't know for sure. -aem

Annatto is yellow isn't it? Paprika is red.

I guess if it's so coarse that you feel like you're eating grit, you
could always strain it through cheesecloth.

I love cooking with wine.
Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Don't know. Haven't done anything with it yet.

Good enough. Thanks.

I may pour it through a coffee filter and see what the filter catches.
OR I may make a run to Penzeys and get annatto seeds (I *think* they
have them.).

When I first read that, I found myself thinking, "I wish *I* lives someplace
where I could just blithely consider going to Penzeys for annatto seeds."

Then I thought, "Minnesota in February? NO WAY!!!" :-)

Yes, they do. I was at my nearby Penzey's yesterday, and they
caught my eye.

It's been decent the last three days ‹ plenty of sunshine. One thing
about getting around in winter * we have experience with moving snow and
keeping the roads driveable. Temps have been moderate and there was a
little fog last evening and the hoarfrost today has been been beautiful.
It was on the trees until early-mid afternoon.

OB Lunch: After picking up Rob's new Mac from the Apple store, we
stopped at Hooter's for lunch.

These are difficult choices to make: Do I go to the one on Grand Ave in
St. Paul, the one in Uptown, or the one in Lakeville that's about 15
minutes from me? The other tough choice I have is which of the five
Trader Joe's I should shop at ‹ 3 are within 20-25 minutes of me.
Decisions, decisions.

It's okay, Dearie. Minnesota winters are not for the faint of heart.
That's what we promote, anyway‹keeps the riff-raff out.
