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:

Coat with flour-salt-pepper mixture:

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.
