Squash blossoms

tcamp | Jun 30, 201206:51 PM     9

A volunteer squash plant near my garden plot was fatally damaged in last night's storms so this morning I harvested 6 blossoms and several squash before composting the plant. I decided to make stuffed squash blossoms, a first for me, and concocted a filling of mozzarella cheese, shallot, and basil, then dipped in egg, flour, and fried. Boy, they were delicious!! I've always sort of dismissed blossoms but I may be a convert. A bit hard to tell what role the actual squash blossom played in the deliciousness but I'm willing to give it another try.

So what do you do with blossoms?
