I had someone comment on my Mama’s Growing A Pumpkin Patch, Unexpectedly post. She suggested that I fry the pumpkin blossoms on my plant. I had never heard of fried pumpkin blossoms, so I decided to Google fried pumpkin blossoms. I came across several recipes and blogs referencing these treats. I thought I would share this recipe:
- 24 pumpkin blossoms
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2/3 cup cracker crumbs
Cut your pumpkin blossoms off where the pumpkin starts on; take the center out and wash well. Make a batter of the milk, eggs, salt and pepper, and dip the blossoms in this batter; then in the cracker crumbs or cornmeal and fry until light brown. Serve hot.
I have not tried this recipe, but I will try it before all of my blooms die out. I hope you enjoy.
