Fried Zucchini Blossoms

We visited Lenny Bruno Farms today in Manorville.

Fresh from the local farm stand… Zucchini Blossoms.

Zucchini Blossoms are quite perishable, and should be used the day they’re bought.

I decided to make some Fried Zucchini Blossoms and these are delicious. My family really enjoyed this side dish. There is nothing like fresh and local ingredients to make a recipe so much better.

Ingredients:

Zucchini Blossoms

Seasoned Breadcrumbs

2 Eggs

Vegetable Oil

Crushed Red Pepper

Directions:

First, heat a skillet with Vegetable Oil and add a teaspoon of crushed red pepper to the oil.

Wash the blossoms gently, pat them dry, and remove the pistils.

Lightly salt the zucchini blossoms.

Put 2 eggs lightly beaten in a glass bowl. and put your seasoned breadcrumbs on a plate.
