Blue poppy seeds are tiny, kidney-shaped, and have a sweet nutty flavor. It is for that flavor that they are used in many bakery goods and cooked dishes. They are very popular in European cooking and are mainly used in cakes, bread, muffins, cookies & pastries, etc.
These seeds have a great amount of oil in them, so they are also crushed to get the oil and it is used in salad dressings, curries, and sauces for meat and fish.
Artists use it as a drying oil and it is even used in soaps.
Did you know:
All parts of the poppy plant can contain or carry opium alkaloids, especially morphine and codeine. This means that eating foods (e.g. muffins) that contain poppy seeds can result in a false positive for opiates in a drug test.
The test is truly positive in that it indicates the presence of the drug correctly; it is false only in the sense that the drug was not taken in the typical manner of abuse.
