    Here's the recipe from the Cranks book that I promised ages ago. I can definitely recomend it. I make it in a small loaf tine since I don't have the right size one from the recipe. Works fine in there

    Have just googled poppy seeds and can't find anything of concern. Apparently they are mildly toxic while setting flower but otherwise ok. Quite a lot of info in links came up re opiate bit and a couple of other recipes. Will try and send recipes when I get a free minute. Am taking a break from sorting paperwork as I have to tax return and tax credits thingy this month.

    not sure which you can and can't eat to be honest.
    I have some heads with purple poppy seeds if you want them though.

    That'd be great.

    I will have more poppy seeds on offer very soon. I've found some very large seed heads in the woods where I walk the dog and as far as I can remember the poppies were a purply colour. They looked lovely so I collected a few seed heads and I'm waiting for them to dry out and release seeds. There will be plenty of seeds and so if anyone wants some fo those I#d be willing to send them out as well.

    Hi Eskymo
    I've found four recipes using poppy seeds for when you have your next batch. I'll scan them into Word and e-mail them to you if that's ok

    OOOhhh - I never thought of using them for cooking! Wow I didn't realise you could. I've just packaged up the seeds to send out to four lucky grapes. So will need to wait until I have another batch before I can can cook with them...cool.

    And it's true about opiates showing up in your blood and urine after eating poppy seeds - I saw something ages ago on the telly where they got people to eat just one poppy seeds bagel and tested them 24 hrs later.

    There's a really nice poppy seed cake in the Cranks cookbook. The poppy seeds really are the main ingredient rather than just a garnish. Will try to remember and look it out tonight and post up

    Yes you could Vicki, that would be one way of dealing with them. Just don't eat too many and compete in anything - they will show up as very low level of opiates in urine

    They do seed readily though. I've discovered a few in my garden which seem to have appeared out of nowhere!

    Sorry Eskymo I can't take any off you but I could probably find you some recipes.

    could you use them to put on top of homemade bread?

    started a topic Red Poppy Seeds

    Red Poppy Seeds

    Hi All

    I sprinkled a 'wild flower mix' at the back of the garden earlier this year and got mostly red poppies as well as some other lovely flowers. I've managed to cut and dry the poppy heads so as to avoid too much natural spread of seeds in the garden and have now got tons of poppy seeds that I do not want.

    Is anyone interested? I'd be happy to post them to anyone who wants them. Just PM me your address and I'll put them in the post.
