For the Love of Fiori di Zucca

  I love many of Italian dishes, but ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers are always on the top of my list of favorites. Making them is a delicate task that I have always left to the professionals, but when someone gave me a basket full of squash flowers, I couldn't resist trying to make them at home. 

My tools: I put the ricotta mixture on a plastic baggie and then cut off the tip to easily get it inside the delicate flowers.

These are the stuffed flowers with twisted ends just before I dip them in tempura and fry them in vegatable oil.

Finished flowers warm, cheesy and ready for devouring.

Sonia, Their only problem is that they are only in season for such a short time.
