flower-power!!

Yesterday my weekly basket of locally grown produce arrived and to my surprise zucchini blossoms cheerfully topped my bountiful basket. These little beauties have been on my list of things to make so I made it my mission to make them before they lost their bloom! To cook these little guys I made a simple batter which I seasoned with salt. I carefully coated these bad boys and then deep fried then turning just once until they were golden in color. As I removed them I sprinkled them with some extra salt for an added hit of flavor. Even though I new better I dove right in and bit right into this hot little number. The batter was light and crispy and the flower was creamy with a wonderful sweet, almost nutty flavor. This is surely a dish I’ll make again and again! I think I have a new favorite flower!

at a low simmer…
