sundown on Christmas Eve. Yield: Makes 2 rolls.

* You can grind poppy seeds in a mortar and pestle. Specialty food stores
sell grinders specifically designed for poppy seeds. Some spice shops sell
poppy seeds already ground, but like all spices they lose their freshness
much more rapidly after they are ground. This year (1987) in Poland, the
people are having a very hard time finding enough poppy seeds for their
strucle z makiem because there is a government crackdown on the growing of
all poppies in an attempt to control opium production.
