As if eating a real fig last week wasnt enough for my immature palate, last night I ate flowers for the first time! Zucchini flowers. They are very popular over here.
They are often served as part of an appetizer arrangement. You buy the flowers, take the stem off and the insides out (be careful as they are fragile). Wash the flower and then stuff it as you see fit.
There are any of a variety of batter recipes, so whatever you prefer is ok....dip the stuffed flowers in the batter, and drop them in a pan of oil to deep fry. As soon as the batter is golden brown, take them out and serve immediately.
Quite a tasty treat! I have included two pics to help you visualize......
