i'm so ignorant, i didn't know you could eat squash blossoms! what do you need to do to them? can you eat them raw?

You can't eat them raw, but if you sautee them with some oil until they wilt, they're really tasty. The stems too. They're fairly common in Mexican food, on tacos, etc.

well, maybe you could eat them raw, but I wouldn't recommend it...

Wow! I've only seen a few recipes with squash blossoms. Now I will have to search them out to use some!

Where do you find them? (other than growing squash of course..)

josh said...

I've found squash blossoms mainly at our farmers market, although you could also find them at Latino grocery shops probably.

I didn't know they were edible either, learn something every day!
