How can separate honey and poppy seed?
Separating a mixture of honey and poppy seed would be difficult, due to the viscosity of the honey.

If the seeds are too small to be caught by the sieve, you probably will need to remove individual seeds with tweezers. (While tedious, it may be your only choice.) However, it will not harm you to eat honey containing poppy seeds.
