Fried Squash Blossoms

Fried Squash Blossoms

We’ve never met a gardener who grew too little summer squash. Picking some of the blossoms for this recipe will help to curb an overabundant harvest and may even make your squash plants healthier. A few summers ago, some close gluten-free friends got together to fry things in a potluck style. Frying can feel like a big undertaking, so it’s great to make a group event of it. We like frying outside, under the stars, where splatters of grease may be magically cleaned by racoon tongues in the night.
