Printed for Sherwood, Gilbert, And Piper,

You must have a colander proportioned to the size of the copper in which you boil the annatto. To every pound of annatto put from twelve ounces to one pound of pearl-ashes, which last dissolve in water, and add the solution, by degrees, to the solution of annatto as it boils and dissolves, for which purpose the annatto must be suspended in the colander over the copper by a flat stick about six inches broad, run through a flat handle on each side of the colander, by which means the colander is kept sunk in the water with the annatto in it, till it is all dissolved, except some little foreign matters. The holes in the colander should be moderately small.

Dissolved in this manner the annatto, if kept clean, will keep as long as you please.
