A Feast for the Eyes and Stomach, too!


I strolled the Farmers' Market today to see the colours of flowers, artifacts and food.  These squash blossoms caught my eye.  Now I have to find a good recipe.  They're really too pretty to eat!      PS. I'm still having tons of trouble posting and commenting.  Thank you to all my loyal blogger friends who are still coming by, despite the fact that I'm not commenting on your blogs.  I'm still trying to solve these problems!!

  1. Looks really appetizing by now. Would you betray your recipe to us? By the way: Abe from Brookville collects recipes for his FatLadyRecipes project.

    The Stonewall Kitchen roasted pepper sesame sauce (buy it at Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel might have it too) goes realy well.

  14. I left a comment but can't remember if you have word verification. I'm too swift for my own good sometimes (aka 'bull in china shop' syndrome!)

  15. If anyone's reading:
    make some tempura batter, dredge the blossoms (check them for protein aka bugs first) in the batter, fry them in shallow oil (we use good olive oil) until crisp and slightly browned and serve them with pureed roasted red pepper sauce (or a good commercial one from Stonewall Kitchens
