Ingredients

 Squash blossoms24 , picked in the early morning, washed, drained and placed in a towel
 Eggs3
 Salt1⁄2 Teaspoon
 Unbleached flour1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
 Baking powder1⁄2 Teaspoon
 Chopped parsley1 Tablespoon
 Garlic1⁄2 Clove (2.5 gm), finely chopped
 Freshly grated parmesan cheese1 Tablespoon
 Vegetable oil4 Tablespoon (As Needed)

Directions

1. Allow the blossoms to remain in the towel while preparing the batter so that the excess water drains from them.
2. Beat together the eggs, salt, flour, and baking powder. The batter should be a fairly thick coating consistency. Add the parsley, garlic, and cheese.
3. Add oil to depth of 1/2 inch in a heavy saucepan. Heat the oil to 360 degrees on a deep-fat thermometer. Dip the blossoms in the batter and fry, one at a time, in the oil until golden. Drain on paper towels.
