Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt: Soft

Become a Photo Hunter View Blogroll

Sorry for the repeat. I have no access to my database of pictures, so flowers it is! This photo is from an old post with not one but two--TWO recipes for fiori di zucca, or squash flowers. 'Tis not the season yet, but 'twill be before long for these yummy edibles. The best thing about the fiori is that when fried using the "pastetta," their crunchy exterior gives way to a warm, devastatingly soft interior.

Who's hungry?

I have never heard of this recipe. I don't know if I can get squash flowers, but I'm going to put the recipe on my recipe blog (If you don't object; proper credit of course will be given!). Then, just in case I find some, I can try it!

Thank you!

Mmmmmm... I LOVE zucchini flowers! Surprisingly, though, I hated the way they were prepared in Milan - deep fried, which seemed much too harsh and greasy for such delicate delicacies.

I actually just wrote a post about zucchini flowers while remembering my grandmother: http://www.veggiechic.com/three-vegetables-my-grandmother-taught-me-to-love/

I'm going to have to try these sometime. I've never eaten fried squash flowers. You're paying 6 euro an hour for internet? That's crazy. We usually found it for 1 to 1 1/2 euro. Really cramps your style, paying that much!

What a scheist! 6 euros an hour?! Do they have any immigrant phone home shops with internet connections in Ischia? They're much cheaper. Your zucchini blossoms are luscious-looking; can't wait for the chance to eat them with some pastella.
