Foraging: Poppy Seeds

What to make of them: A few ideas

  • Poppy seeds work famously well with lemon in baked desserts.
  • If you make your own personal care products, they can be used in a facial exfoliating mask for gentle action (similar but infinitely preferable to plastic microbeads).
  • Below are a selection of recipes; you’ll find many more on Pinterest.
