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

Basic Prep:
Use poppy seeds as called for in your recipes. The flavor of poppy seeds can be intensified by dry roasting them before adding to recipes.

  1. Consistently Fresh and Tasty 5 Star Review

    I like to make my Hungarian Grandmother's pastries the way she used to make them. The flavor is like no other, and it makes you feel like your in another world. But the ingredients have to be just right, and these seeds are perfect. Fresh, crunchy, nutty, and a little sweet; you can't find them anywhere else. Now I get to make Sundays at Grandpa's house memorable. :^)

    I eat poppy seeds in salads and yogurt. Great source of calcium and minerals. The missing link in most diets is lack of mineral sources with nuts and seeds. I snack on raw, cashews, figs, dried berries, and seeds daily getting plently of exercise.

    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.
