Pumpkin or Zuccini Flowers
After a few showers, the pumpkin vines are growing wild in the backyard,
so how to get them under control?
Yes, the new buds, and fresh stalk and flowers are all edible, despite some hairy bits on them.
Here is my recipe:
Pick up fresh flowers, rinse with water
Fry until gold and crisp
Cool and drain the fried flowers. The green stem may taste a little bit bitter---
hey, it's bound to chill out your liver in the summer.
Serve with rice porridge/congee, and other summerly beans and corns
