Sazón (Puerto Rican Seasoning)

The counterpart to adobo seco, sazón is another Puerto Rican seasoned salt – the difference being that while adobo is primarily used to flavor meat, sazón is primarily used to flavor vegetables. Traditionally, sazón contains ground annatto (achiote molido) for color, but I can only find whole annatto seeds in my area. I’ve learned the hard way that it is incredibly difficult and time-consuming to grind the seeds by hand. 😥 So, for my blend, I’ve swapped it out for turmeric powder. — H. Weal
