    Your cake looks soooo good! Love poppy seeds in anything so THANKS for sharing. Know what’s for the weekend treat!!
    Have you ever harvested poppy seeds? We harvest black & reddish brown ones & they’re normally smaller than the store bought ones but taste good. The flower colours are from deep purple to light mauve & different shades of red. We crack a small hole in the dried pods near the crown then shake the seeds out.
    One dish we regularly eat in winter is fried cabbage, red onions, apples, poppy seeds, fired bacon or homemade sausage. Add red wine vinegar, whole grain mustard, brown sugar & lots of pepper.
