Fresh.n.Natural's picture
Ingredients
  Squash blossoms 24 , picked in the early morning, washed, drained and placed in a towel
  Eggs 3
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Unbleached flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Baking powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1⁄2 Clove (2.5 gm), finely chopped
  Freshly grated parmesan cheese 1 Tablespoon
  Vegetable oil 4 Tablespoon (As Needed)
Directions

1. Allow the blossoms to remain in the towel while preparing the batter so that the excess water drains from them.
2. Beat together the eggs, salt, flour, and baking powder. The batter should be a fairly thick coating consistency. Add the parsley, garlic, and cheese.
3. Add oil to depth of 1/2 inch in a heavy saucepan. Heat the oil to 360 degrees on a deep-fat thermometer. Dip the blossoms in the batter and fry, one at a time, in the oil until golden. Drain on paper towels.
