poppy leaves anyone?

E.Kolliopoulos | Apr 14, 2007 07:15 AM

I went to the farmers market this morning and found a large bunch of poppy leaves. My friend, who oddly enough is named Poppi, says she uses them in her hortopita (greens pie) then freezes the rest for later use. She also told me not to use too much because they make you sleepy. Does anyone know of any recipes for poppy leaves? I am wondering if I could make a tea as a home remedy for insomnia. Could I use in salads? Have not found anything on the web, hoping someone can help me out.
