Product Info:
Poppy Seeds (Papaver Somniferum) are native to the Middle East. It is an annual that produces not only Poppy Seeds but also opium, morphine and codeine. These latter three products are derived from the sap of unripe pods.  Poppy Seeds are tiny, nutty flavored, blue-gray seeds, and today, our poppy seeds are a product of Holland. The Greeks used the seeds as flavoring for breads in the second century, and medieval Europeans used them as condiment with breads. 

Suggested Use:
Poppy seeds are often added to cookies, cakes, breads and muffins to add a nutty flavor and texture. They're a deep blue and when cooked in milk turn the milk a beautiful shade of purple. The nutty flavor of poppy seeds is enhanced by dry roasting.

Black Poppy Seeds

    Glad to be able to purchase these poppy seeds for the upcoming holiday baking. Have not used them yet, as it's been too hot to do any baking, but expect them to be good as all other spices I have ordered have been excellent.
