Steenbergs Organic White Poppy Seeds come from Turkey. Organic white poppy seeds are used in Indian cooking to add texture and flavour to sauces. Organic white poppy seeds are less sweet than blue poppy, they are added to lentil and rice dishes, but not used as much for dessert recipes, and try dry roasting them to increase the flavour.


Organic white poppy seeds come from the poppy plant, Papaver somniferum. Poppy plants are both annuals and perennials that grow to about 1.2m (4ft) high. The poppy plants have flowers that blossom in a myriad of colours from white through to pink. After flowering, the seed capsule forms as a rounded, papery-looking woody capsule with a multi-pointed crown at the top, with small holes around the rim. Inside the centre of the capsule, there are several chambers containing hundreds and hundreds of small seeds of no more than a millimetre in diameter. The capsule are mechanically removed when the seed heads turn yellow-brown, the capsule are dried then seeds removed from the capsules to create the organic blue poppy seeds. Organic white poppy seeds have little aroma except when you open a new bag when you get a waft of nutty, oily aromas, while the taste is a mild and slight nuttiness. For more about white  poppy, dig into Gernot Katzer's Spice Pages.


Poppy seeds are usually used in baking, either through breads or sprinkled over the edge of bread or the outside of savoury or sweet biscuits.  Try this White Poppy Seed Lemon Cake.  Poppy seeds are also tasty added into vinaigrette or sprinkled over courgettes and potatoes or through salads to add an extra crunchy and nutty dimension to the salad leaves. For some culinary excitement, try Allrecipes or BBC Website.
