Pumpkin or Zuccini Flowers

After a few showers, the pumpkin vines are growing wild in the backyard,
so how to get them under control?

Eat them.
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
