My husband LOVES poppy seeds, so every time we are in the grocery store he never skips the shelf in the back of the bakery where sets the not-fresh-from-the-oven baked goods. Any time he finds a package of poppy seed bagels it’s like striking it rich in the gold mine. Since these bagels are already running out of time when we buy them, I pre-slice them and put them in the freezer. Once they are toasted, they are as good as fresh for a lot less money.
While my husband experiences great joy every time he gets to have a poppy seed bagel, I am tormented by those little seeds rolling all over the counter and floor. What a waste! The bottom of the bag is full of those little guys! So in typical waste-not-want-not fashion, I decided to capture them for future use. I slice the bagels over a bowl to catch those that jump ship. Then I pour them, along with those that are in the bag, into an air tight container. Since the poppy seeds are put on the bagels prior to baking, they are already toasted and are great for sprinkling on salads or any dish where you would like a little nutty flavor! Save those poppy seeds and start growing your savings!!
