Fried zucchini flowers(REAL recipe)

I’ve Google “fried zucchini flowers recipe”…JESUS! For cooking “love” is not the only necessary thing, turns out you actually need the right ingredients.

I won’t provide you quantities, just follow what your instinct says.

Let me start with the batter: you need water, flour, OLIVE OIL, a sip of BEER and little bit of salt. You can also use some brewer’s yeast to make the batter more pompous. No, water and flour won’t give you an excellent batter. And no, adding eggs, spicies and anything else you can think of won’t make it any better.

Well, you also need zucchini flowers(if you have zucchini plants, pick the flowers in the morning when they are open, make sure there is not a possible zucchini growing from the flower).

How we actually do it:

In a large pot, heat about 2″ oil over medium heat, drop some batter and check if it actually fries. Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl, then whisk in a little bit of beer and olive oil until almost smooth . One by one, dredge the blossoms in batter, shaking off the excess; gently lay them in the oil, without crowding the pan. Cook, flipping once with a slotted spoon, until golden brown, 2-3 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with sea salt and devour while hot.

Sure my grandma would be proud of this blog post.
