Spring is here which means most farmer’s markets will have squash blossoms for sale. I was lucky enough to have some squash blossoms growing in the garden. As I was watering the squash I got hungry so I picked a few blossoms and deep fried them…with string cheese!

Ingredients

Squash blossoms (remove the stem in the middle with pollen)

Tempura batter

Something to stuff them with…cheese, dates, honey, etc…

Method

Stuff the blossoms.

If you’re afraid of the contents spilling out, tie the open end with chive leaves.

Heat the oil.

Prepare the tempura batter as directed on the box.

Deep fry and enjoy.

Other suggested fillings

ricotta cheese

sausage

But really, keep it simple to enjoy the taste of the flower.
