ORGANIC POPPY SEEDS, black
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Black poppy seeds are an oilseed obtained from the dried seed pods of the poppy flower. These tiny, kidney-shaped seeds have been harvested by various civilizations for thousands of years for both culinary and sedative uses. To some extent, harvesting for poppy seeds is in conflict with harvesting for opium. Poppy seeds of superior quality are harvested from ripe seed pods whereas opium is harvested while the seed pods are still green and their latex is abundant.
Qualities: Poppy seeds are composed of 6% water, 28% carbohydrates, 42% fat, and 21% protein and are a rich source of thiamin, folate, and several essential minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
Common use: the seeds are used, whole or ground, as an ingredient in many foods all over the world - especially in pastry and bread, or pressed to yield poppy seed oil.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place

Like homegrown, Very Good
I grew up enjoying homemade poppyseed rolls made with homegrown poppy, so I'm not new to poppyseed. I've tried to find good poppy, like what my mom used to grow herself and have had quite a few disappointments. This is every bit as good as any poppy I've ever had, just like the poppy my mom used to grow and use. It's got a flavor that's really fresh and sweet. This might be the first review I've ever written on anything I've ever bought, couldn't help myself. I'll be buying more.
