Poppy Seeds


The most commonly found poppy seeds are black. These tiny seeds are used to make a filling for pastries as well as atop breads. The black poppy seeds are more common to Europe while the white seeds are mostly used in Indian cuisine.

Find black poppy seeds in most grocery stores. Purchase in small amounts as the seeds have a high oil content and will go rancid.
