Step-by-Step Pumpkin Blossoms

I hadn’t made fried pumpkin blossoms in years! Of course, I haven’t grown pumpkins in years, either. In fact, my youngest son couldn’t remember what they tasted like … and he is 18. So, let’s get started!

Pick the blossoms early in the morning while they are open:

Wash blossoms and lay on towel to dry:

Dip in egg and milk batter:

Coat with flour-salt-pepper mixture:

Brown in oil:

Maybe it’s just making me think of fall pumpkins and Halloween … but I kept seeing little witches’ hands in my skillet!

ENJOY!! I even sprinkled brown sugar on some of them for a sweeter treat.

    I cain’t help myself. I gotta point out the obvious here. You keep eatin’ them punkin blossoms and you ain’t gonna have no punkins.

    • 🙂 Good comment. But … I only pick the male blossoms. I’ll show you what I mean in a future post. The female blossoms have the “baby” pumpkin at the base of the blossom. I don’t mess with those!
