Poppy Seeds Blue (whole)
Although the Poppy Seeds of culinary use are gathered from the dreaded opium poppy, Poppy Seeds have no effective narcotic content.
Blue Poppy Seeds are used mostly in European cooking while the slightly smaller white ones are a regular feature in Indian recipes.
Both have a pleasing, nutty taste that goes well with breads, biscuits and cakes. Poppy seeds are used as a spice, a condiment, a decorative garnish, a thickener, and a main ingredient. They are used in many baked goods, main course dishes, and desserts.
Botanical Names: (Papaver somniferum)
