I was given a case of canned poppy seeds and canned apricots, from a friend who knows that I like to cook. But I haven't a clue at what to make with these. What can I use these in?

Oh I LOVE poppy seeds, maybe a candy? You can find a recipe that would use sesame seeds, say for candy and use poppy seeds, or granola bars. Or eat a lot and then don't worry about holidays, but don't take any drugs tests!
Poppy seed bagels are my favorite! How about poppy seed bread, or muffins (don't use almond extract, in my opinion that stuff ruins anything and tastes and smells like outhouse deodorizer!). Have fun!
You can find lots of recipes under the following:
olo poppy seed filling
olo canned apricots
Nut roll recipes can be used with the poppy seeds or apricots substituted. Google nut rolls, poppy seed rolls, or apricot rolls. Some are rolled up in all the dough as a loaf, and some are made rolled up as cookies. Delicious!
There is a name "kolatchie" I know it is spelled wrong, but they are the wedge shaped filled with filling rolled up cookies, like a crescent roll.
USE THE APRICOTS TO MAKE A DELICIOUS PIE. JUST USE PEACH PIE RECIPE, BUT WITH APRICOTS INSTEAD OF PEACHES.
