Poppy seeds come from a yellowish brown opium plant native to the Mediterranean. They have been cultivated since the 6th century. Nowadays these tiny blue gray seeds are mainly produced in Holland and Canada.
Poppies are thought to be one of the earliest plants cultivated by man.
Poppy seeds have a nutty tasting flavor and are mainly used in baking. They are popular in breads, cakes, rolls and cookies. Refrigerate or freeze poppy seeds to maintain freshness. There are more than 900,000 poppy seeds to the pound.
