Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms
Wash blossoms gently and remove the sepals.
Place blossoms in ice water in refrigerator until ready to use.
Dry blossoms gently and stuff with a scant teaspoon of goat cheese, ricotta, or a mixture of your favorite ‘stuff’.
Twist blossom ends, or tie off with a chive ‘string’.
Dip in flour or Wondra, then dip in beaten egg, and then in flour again .
Fry in hot canola oil, turning as they brown.
When golden, remove, drain on paper towels or torn grocery bag, and eat.
Similar to this, my favorite way is stuffed. I stuff with ricotta and mix in dill and sauteed/carmelized shallots, season generously w/ freshly ground pepper and salt, also mix in pecorino or parmesan, stuff and bake. My apartment is small and I get headaches from frying, so I just bake them.
Another way to use them is on homemade pizza-- toss with ricotta and mozzarella.
Mmm. Now I need to get some for myself!
