Nana Amy's Classic Simply Fried Squash Blossoms.

in #food4 years ago

This simple fried squash blossom recipe has been in our family and loved by all for generations. When we were kids we used to wait at the kitchen counter for my mom to dish these yummy and beautiful squash blossoms like it was candy. I promise you and yours are going to LOVE these little treasures. I grow extra squash plants every year just for the blossoms and during July, August and September every potluck and friendly game night gathering we attend I bring a big platter of these fried blossoms. There are NEVER any left overs to take back home. Try them with a little tomato slice and spicy dip topping....... ummmmmmm.
