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:
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.
I’ve never tried this. Looks good!
This is great! I had never heard of eating pumpkin blossoms before. Thanks will have to try this.
I hope you enjoy them. They are almost a delicacy!
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!
Ohhhhhh, I can’t wait to read about that. Gonna educate myself.
That sounds interesting. I have never tried pumpkin flowers…
I hope you get to soon!
