SQUASH BLOSSOMS!

  The best part of joining a CSA is the mystery of what bundle of delicious greens we are going to get each week. This week, we got a lot of good stuff, including squash blossoms! These fragile fickle flowers are so gorgeous. I have only had them battered and fried, so why mess with success? I didn't even clean them, worried they might just disintegrate down the drain. I dipped them in some beaten eggs, then in flour seasoned with salt and pepper, then into a shallow fry pan of oil. I turned them once, then set them on a paper towel, and seasoned them with salt and pepper. They were really delicious. I wanted more! Here is a post with more squash blossom recipes that my fellow Woodside CSA members shared.

Of course they could have given us more than 6. A man with a decent size
"panza" [pancia]cannot live on 6 zucchini flowers.

Now that you have enough posts, let one of them ride for more than five minutes. You put up so many.

Oh I just LOVE squash blossoms. My grandmother used to make them stuffed with ricotta, parmesan and a little black pepper. Delicious!
