Oh yeah, I'm with susan g. First, refrigerate them all. Next, whatever you can't use very soon, freeze. They go rancid at room temp in any quantity. Once you smell that smell, you'll never forget it. Seriously, 2 pounds?!

use them in Indian dishes, the masala pastes that are usually made with onion, garlic coriander & cumin, Add a handful of Poppy seeds while making the paste, adds a lovely nutty component to the taste profile. Poppy seeds are an essential ingredient in Korma.

At the church my parents attend the poppyseed kolaches made by the ladies keeping the Czech tradition were always great, and I'm not much of a sweets person. This recipe seems like what I remember http://czechmatediary.com...
The filling can be used for a number of things--regular breads, sweetbreads, cookies--I can even see it working with cheese.
And of course, as a savory person, I favor indiscriminate sprinkling on crackers/ breads.
