Need help with zucchini or squash flowers

I'm growing zucchini mainly for the flowers because I recently had them at a restaurant stuffed with ricotta cheese. lightly battered and fried. I want to make this at home!

When is it best to harvest? Obviously you pick them before the flower drops from the fruit, but should you pick them before the fruit forms or is it better when there is a tiny zucchini or squash attached?

How can I store the flowers until I have enough to cook for several people?

Anybody have any good recipes for the flowers?
