    Fried Zucchini Flowers
    Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence and JoAnn Cianciulli

    Vegetable oil, for frying
    2 large egg yolks
    1 cup ice water
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    12 zucchini flowers with stems
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Pour 3 inches of oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy pot and heat to 375 degrees F.
    In a deep mixing bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks and pour in the ice water; mix to combine. Add the flour and continue to mix until the batter is the consistency of heavy cream. Dip 2 zucchini flowers at a time in the batter to coat completely, letting the excess drip off. Fry the flowers in the hot oil for 2 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Drain the fried flowers on a platter lined with paper towels, season with salt and pepper while they are still hot. Repeat with the remaining zucchini flowers.

    1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
    1/2 tsp Baking Powder
    1/4 tsp Garlic Salt
    1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
    1/2 cup Milk
    1 TBSP Vegetable Oil (*you will need additional oil to deep fry blossoms)
    1 Egg
    12 Squash/Zucchini Blossoms (large, freshly picked)

    In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, beat egg, milk and 1 TBSP oil. Add to dry ingredients and stir until smooth.
    In a skillet, heat two inches of oil to 375 degrees F. Dip blossoms into batter and fry in oil, a few at a time until crisp.
    Drain on paper towels. Keep warm until serving. Yield 4 servings.
