Epice pure

The words of Olivier Roellinger

Widely used in both Oriental and Germanic cuisine, blue poppies are used to make poppyseed oil, which has a delicate, almond flavour. I particularly appreciate these grains roasted very lightly, together with sesame seeds.

Botanical notes

Papaver somniferum. Large plant with white flowers. Produces bluish-coloured grains that taste of hazelnut. Narcotic substances are present in the immature seeds.
