squash blossoms

The yellow squash blossoms are male flowers where female flowers have a tiny squash attached at the stem.  They can be pricey in the supermarkets but I got them for 2 dollars for 30 flowers at farmers markets.  Handle the blossoms with care, they can bruise easily.  They stay fresh for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. 

If you have the space and the time, it’s best to grow your own.  My mother used to have a good patch where we could pick enough for a stir fry.  We also like them lightly battered and fried (have them with chili fish sauce).  Hmmm…yum!
