  • As for baking, the poppy seeds should be ground beforehand. Either you buy ground poppy seeds right away or you grind them yourself if you have a mill. Grinding releases the essential oils better. However, you should only grind as much poppy seed as you need. If necessary, excess poppy seeds can be frozen.
  • There are blue, grey and white poppies. You should use grey poppy seeds for this recipe, as their mild taste makes them best suited for desserts. The blue poppy, on the other hand, is stronger and should rather be used for spicy dishes. The rare and noble white poppy is often used for Indian recipes or sometimes for desserts.
