Eating squash blossoms?

Post  TheVickster on 6/29/2011, 7:58 pm

From what I understand you can eat squash blossoms, but I haven't found many details. Any suggestions for preparation? Do you cook them or use them raw as a garnish? I love the idea of making good use out of as much of my garden as I can!

I've heard of them being deep fried but I've never done it.

There are a few recipes here and here. Come to think of it, they may be the same recipes. I didn't look that closely at them when I Googled Wink

A friend of mine dips hers in a batter and deep fries them. Be sure there are no bugs in the blossom before you cook them. Nasty when you bite into a beetle or a bumblebee. Laughing

Wow, thanks everyone. I realized too late that I probably should've posted this question in the recipe thread. Regardless, you all came through - can't wait to try some of these!

why would you eat it? Won't it grow into a squash?

If you have an over abundance of male blossoms, or you have so many fruit on the plant that you know you won't eat them all, this is a great way to use them.
