Poppy Seeds, Dutch Blue
Poppy Seeds, the tiny dried seeds of the opium poppy, used as food, food flavoring, and the source of poppy-seed oil. They have no narcotic properties. The fluid contained in the bud that becomes opium is present only before the seeds are fully formed. The plant, Papaver somniferum, is an herbaceous annual native to Greece and the Orient. Poppy seed is an ancient spice. The seeds are about 1 mm in length. Kidney-shaped, and grayish blue to dark blue in color. They have a faint nut like aroma and a mild, nutty taste especially popular in breads and other baked goods.
