Quick and easy main dish. A good way to use up extra zucchini from the summer garden. My mother used to make this to keep the kitchen from getting too hot from the oven. Serve over cooked rice.

Crispy Zucchini or Pumpkin Blossoms

Rating: Unrated
My Italian grandmother makes these every year when the zucchini in her garden start to blossom. She is Sicilian and calls them 'cripelli.' It's sort of like a fritter and so yummy. As an alternative, you could also chop up the blossoms and mix them up in the batter and drop by teaspoons into the hot oil.
