"Pick the flowers off your zucchini plants as soon as you see some zucchini has started to come in under the flower. A very tasty treat! Try stuffing the blossoms with goat cheese before frying them!"

We really enjoyed these. Even my 4 yr old picky eater liked them. I stuffed them with feta cheese- very yummy! They cooked very quickly, and sort of looked like fried chicken when done. Now I ha...

olive oil caused these to burn. When I used canola oil they came out much better...probably 3 and 1/2 stars.
