Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Food Facts
Both the male and female squash blossoms can be used to prepare this recipe. The male blossoms appear at the ends of thin stems and can be harvested without curtailing production of the squash. If using male squash blossoms, remove the stamens first. The female blossoms, which form at the end of the buds that grow into the squash, are typically harvested with the tiny, nascent squash still attached.
Tip 2
Where to Buy Squash Blossoms
Look for squash blossoms at farmers markets and some Latino markets during the summer months.
Tip 3
Size Wise
Enjoy eating appetizers at a social occasion, but be mindful of portion size so you don't overdo it on calories!
