I found this poppy spread at the Turkish shop near my house. Ingredients: Poppy.


In India, Iran and Turkey poppy seeds are known as khaskhas or haşhaş and are considered highly nutritious, mostly added in dough while baking bread, and recommended for pregnant women and new mothers.

I haven’t experimented much yet. I think it would probably make an interesting alternative to tahini in hummus. It’s nice on a beschuit with hagelslag on top.

Incidentally someone made an experimental tune called beschuit met hagelslag.
