florist says: "i still cook and eat"





OK HOLD THE PHONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
batterfried zucchini blossoms stuffed with manchego and ricotta, dipped in lavender honey with some quick pickled currants plus a bit of serrano ham

IF you mix about 1/2 - 2/3 cup of ricotta with an egg, some salt pepper and about 1/2 cup of grated manchego and a smattering of bread crumbs

THEN you stuff it into the zucchini blossoms (using a pastry bag or ziplock bag)

AND you mix a batter of 3/4 cup flower with 2/3 cup of beer to coat the stuffed blossoms

WILL you suspend judgment and fry them in 2 inches of canola oil??????????????????????

We were just talking about squash blossoms the other day and the best way to prepare them. I will have to set this recipe aside to try next spring when we have squash plants again.

so glad that you are eating blossoms instead of working with them. it's always wise to take a break every now and again!

My grandmother made fried zucchini blossoms -- freshly picked from her massive garden -- all summer. They are, hands down, the perfect food. (She used olive oil, however. . . .)

My grandmother spent every other day this summer making those. They are a southern Italian specialty. I agree they are especially tasty when filled.
