    • Olive oil can totally be used in the recipe. I used Pomace in this recipe because it’s cheaper as it’s not a first pressing. You can use annatto powder instead of infusing, I’m not sure of the amount to achieve the same color. If you are using powder make sure to mix it will a little bit of your oil before adding to the whole mixture to avoid clumping, this is for any powder additive.
