Achiote paste (or annatto seeds) in Vancouver

peter.v | Feb 17, 2009 04:39 PM

I'm looking to make pork carnitas this week and my recipe calls for achiote paste. The recipe mentions I need about half a package, so apparently you can get this packaged, but I'm also willing to make my own (I think I'd rather make my own actually) with annatto seeds if those are available. Does anyone know where I can acquire either ingredients? I'm guessing someone down on Commercial probably has them, but I'm not really familiar with Mexican/Latino grocers. Thanks in advance folks!
