I had someone comment on my Mama's Growing A Pumpkin Patch, Unexpectedly post. She suggested that I fry the pumpkin blossoms on my plant. I had never heard of fried pumpkin blossoms, so I decided to google fried pumpkin blossoms. I came across several recipes and blogs referencing these treats. I thought I would share this recipe:
24 pumpkin blossoms
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2/3 cup crackercrumbs
Cut your pumpkin blossoms off where the pumpkin starts on; take the center out and wash well. Make a batter of the milk, eggs, salt and pepper, and dip the blossoms in this batter; then in the cracker crumbs or cornmeal and fry until light brown. Serve hot.
I have not tried this recipe, but I will try it before all of my blooms die out. I hope you enjoy.
