Making Annatto Oil...

Googled making annatto oil. Most recipes called for using the seeds. I've got the molido/ground. Can I use this instead?

Any suggestions?

Ground will be faster and you won't need as much annatto seed to get the color. You will probably want to filter it with some fine mesh to get the grains out. But, it is entirely possible you wont be able to get all the ground annatto out of the oil. But if that doesn't bother you no biggie.

I have made it with the powder, then strained it through paper coffee filters a couple times. Be patient, it takes a while.
