Poppy Seed Filling

Combine and soak overnight in the refrigerator

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups poppy seeds

In the morning put in large saucepan. ATTN The mixture can boil up quickly so don’t start in a too-small pan. Add

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or finely ground almonds)

Bring to a simmer, stirring regularly and ATTN watching that it doesn’t boil over. When it reaches a simmer, lower the heat and maintain the simmer for 15 minutes. The mixture should be thicker.

Remove from heat and let cool. When cool add

  • 1 beaten egg

This is used to make Hamentaschen or Fluden.  See the recipes for Hamentaschen Sugar Dough and  Hamentaschen Honey Dough. This makes enough filling for about 80 hamentaschen, but it can be used for other recipes as well. It will keep for up to 6 months in the freezer.
