I sure hope that works good Boofer because I did the same thing.  I had made annatto oil in the past for making mexican rice and aroz con pollo so I was familiar with the seeds.  I used quite a bit in a colby I did recently but won't know how it came out until I get the wax off at Christmas time.

Please make sure you follow up here with your results, Al. I'm sure there will be some interest in the outcome.

Thanks,

Will do.  I'm assuming, incorrectly perhaps, that this stuff gets darker as the cheese ages.  I'll certainly post some pictures of mine when I open it.
