Another Dish

Another day after a full day of class Stacey treated Nina and me to a relaxed dinner at home including a dish I'd always been curious about but had yet to try. These are fried zucchini blossoms and what a treat they are! If you've ever grown zucchini you know that you can't give away enough zucchini once they start coming in so nipping the blossoms is a great way to control the harvest. You don't want to waste these beauties tho'.

Stacey made a light batter of flour and egg with sparkling water and dipped the blossoms in it. The trick is to have the fat hot enough to crisp the blossoms almost immediately so that they don't soak up excessive oil.

They were even better than I had hoped! K Q:-)
