fried Zucchini Blossoms

Oh look! I'm blogging? What?
Every time I log on lately I see new updates to this Food Blogging group on Facebook - that I am now a part of - and then I start stalking all the new blogs I see and then have to continue the cyber creepiness by checking out their Pinterest boards and god forbid they be linked to Twitter! 

All of a sudden the family is home and wondering where dinner is?!!! 

"I don't know! Just let me look through One more board?!"


It's actually rather sad...



The first step to recovery is admission right?


Well, let me get this little recipe up quick so I can go back to scrolling through all these amazing websites.


During my Farmers Market visit last Sunday morning I picked up these beautiful zucchini blossoms. 
Husband was a little skeptical but I was a little determined. 
It was definitely one of those "You're going to this party and you're going to have fun" moments.


It also just so happened that on Saturday's episode of French Food at Home - Laura Calder made these little fried treats - so, with all of this fresh in my mind, I pay for my little blossoms and head home.


BTW - I am without camera right now so I apologize for the quality of my photos. :-(


Here they are


Ada said they look like baby birds begging for food...they kind of do actually.




LC said to use Peanut Oil to fry these and I did happen to have some so that is what I used. The other ingredients are 1/4 cup flour with a 1/4 cup of cornstarch in one bowl, then 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk in another bowl - add a little salt and pepper to both bowls and mix well. 
And that's it!
























TO DO:


Wash and dry the blossoms - make sure they are really dry inside and out.


Get your oil heated and ready - I figured this was a good time to let my blossoms dry a bit and get all the other stuff prepped for dinner.


When ready, thoroughly dip a blossom in the egg and milk mixture.
Then gently turn over and over in the flour, cornstarch mixture until it is completely coated.


Carefully place into the fry pan.
Let cook until golden brown then flip.
Cook then remove to a paper towel to drain.


Plate.
Sprinkle with a little fresh, chopped Dill.
Serve immediately.

Ada said the above photo looks like a photo of a Dinosaur foot...it kind of does.


These taste like regular Fried Zucchini - Delicious!
