Jamaican or Caribbean Yellow Spice? What is it called?

rachaeln | Mar 9, 2008 01:48 PM

When I lived in San Francisco, I purchased a small yellow tin of a very, very, very bright yellow-orange powder (I wouldnt call it a spice, since I dont think it had much, if any, flavor) that I would add to rice to make it (almost neon) yellow.

Somehow along the way, I threw out the tin and now want some.

Does anyone know what this item is or where I can buy it?

I tried Google, but nothing seemed right. I do not think it was annatto, asofedita or tumeric, since it really was much brighter yellow.

Thanks!
