As a result of the potager heads into full summer season manufacturing, we uncover ourselves with loads of courgettes or zucchini. We prefer to eat the courgettes once they’re really small, and I try to decide on them every day. Nonetheless we moreover love the flowers.

Zucchini flowers are little presents from the potager gods. They’re pretty to see, they serve to attract the pollinators that we would like, and so they’re delicious.

My pal Stacey Snacks cooks hers filled with ricotta, parmesan, and herbs, which is nice. You can see her recipe proper right here.

Proper right here in France, we most regularly eat them as a starter or as a nibble with drinks. I make up the batter prematurely, and fry the flowers on the ultimate second.

Beat it successfully to ensure there usually are not any flour lumps, then gently place your first batch of flours inside the batter, making certain they’re coated on all sides. Some people mud the flowers with flour sooner than dipping them inside the batter, I don’t uncover that wanted.
