Blue Poppy Seed

The floral, blackish-blue seed of the poppy, or opium plant, poppy seeds were first discovered in the Mediterranean, but were adopted worldwide—especially by European cultures like Germany, which incorporates them in large quantities to baked dishes like struedels, as their mild, nutty flavor pairs well with sweetness. It’s also a favorite bagel topping, and a great way to add texture to salads.
