Discover Squash Blossoms!

Original post made by Jacqui Love Marshall, San Ramon, on Sep 18, 2010

Until recently, I had only heard of squash blossoms but I had never eaten them. In August, I tasted a mouth-watering dish of them as a first course at a local vineyard’s restaurant and I was instantly enthralled. A week later I was hunting them down at the Danville Farmer’s Market. I had just about abandoned my search when I found them on the last aisle, packed by the dozen at a vendor’s booth. I was one happy camper but now I had to discover how to cook them. To my further delight, the zucchini plant in my backyard garden produced two of its own, making me wonder if I had just not recognized them there before.
