well the rolls were so-so. They were kind of dry. But I had a bit of a victory today because I decided to make a loaf of bread. It got absolutely delicious! Even my husband couldn't believe it! LOL I think I have my technique and ingredient-adding sequence down now. I made notes in the cookbook right by the recipe as to what I did. So I will make the rolls once more at Christmas. I'm also adding some bread-baking cookbooks to my Christmas list.

You are correct Bill, Makowiec is a yeast cake.

I didn't know there was such a thing as a yeast cake....I just know the ones I grew up eating always reminded me more of a bread than a cake

But they look beautiful, ... I'm excited enough to try homemade dinner rolls also! This bread-baking thing could be fun! Off to study my cookbooks......Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
glad to hear you're getting the hang of it. your average dinner roll should be much easier. once you get into it, bread making is pretty forgiving, in that it's easy to adjust, add or subtract ingredients or even start bread on one day and finish on the next.

best of luck on your future endeavors

This really has nothing to do with the above recipes...I just want to know....can poppy seeds go rancid? Can they be kept in a tightly closed jar in the pantry? Or, do they have to be refridgerated?

poppy seeds have oil, and anything oily can go rancid.

in your fridge or freezer, they could be fine for years. however, stored in a warm place, for example near your stove, in a warm kitchen in the summer, etc., they could concievably go bad within a few months. the same with cookng oil, nuts, whole grain flours, etc.

rancid food has a distinctive acrid smell, and a bitter taste. i've read that they are carcinogenic. if you have any doubts, you should probably toss them out.

google and wikipedia should provide you with plenty of better detaled info.
