Fried Zucchini Flowers
Yes thats right it is the flower of the Zucchini that contains the essence of Zucchini.This delicious treat is a delicacy in France and the flowers are sold at the open street markets.This year I developed my own version of Fried Zucchini after trying several different recipes.
This one is very simple and proves the old adage, LESS IS MORE to be true. So go out and pop these little beauties off your zucchini plants while you can. Don't worry you will still get zucchinis to eat as well.
You will need:
Zucchini Flowers (Gather as many flowers that you can harvest sometimes I just cook two)
salt and pepper
cover bottom of small nonstick pan with olive oil, add flowers, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and then with flour. Cook for a couple of minutes on medium to low heat, turn and repeat. Sit down at your garden table, eat very slowly and enjoy the bliss. It is the essence of zucchini.
Here is another treat and original recipe from Mon Petit Bleu!
Raspberry Sauce/Jam3-4 cups fresh raspberries
1 packet CERTO
rinse raspberries and place in bowl, add sugar and mash add CERTO and mix thorougly. Pour into small jars and put in freezer or use immediately on toast, waffles, crepes, ice cream.
