Edible Flowers

Last week we've seen photos of the garden and the huge zucchini plant with many flowers but no zucchini. Today was the day to pick some of those flowers, batter, and fry them up.

The results were a wonderful platter of crispy, tender deep fried flowers. Vegetarian, fresh and delicious!

I've had squash blossom delicacies similar to these, and they are truly wonderful. Great duo photos to show us the process.

Have dear friends who do just as you do. They are love them and because they are somewhat of a "delicacy" depending on how many blooms they want to prune, they are savored. Thank you for sharing

I've had edible flowers in salads but never deep fried. (And I was born in Texas where we fry EVERYTHING!)

Looks yummy!
