I was so excited this spring to plant squash plants and I, sadly, managed to kill my squash plant. However, before that I got to make at least one batch of fried squash blossoms and we did get a couple of squash. I have wanted to make these since I found out that squash blossoms are edible.
These did taste great but I did make a few mistakes. The biggest one being that I picked the blossoms too late in the day. They open in the morning and close in the afternoon. Once the blossoms close they are difficult to wash and stuff.
I stuffed these blossoms with fresh basil, thyme, oregano, and mozzarella. The batter recipe was a bit more difficult but I ended up going with the one in the below YouTube video. There is something about an old Italian recipe that make you want to cook.
I am going to try these again next summer and I will do my best not to kill my plants so that I can make at least a few batches. The flavor was good, a little like a Parmesan chips.
Here is to trying new foods and new recipes. Have a good Friday!
