I love these poppy seeds... I grind them up a bit for a poppy seed cake. I love Burlap and Barrel❤️
I just tried using Burlap & Barrel Blue Poppy Seeds in an "Everything Bread" I have been making and they are as wonderful as all of the other Burlap & Barrel products I use such as the King Caraway Seeds. Burlap & Barrel certainly sets the standard for what spices should taste like! I love using them in cooking and baking and they never disappoint. Not to mention the packaging and shipping is first-rate!
..that make homemade bagels so delicious!
The seeds were super fresh, tasty and beautiful.
These poppy seeds have been the best, by far.
