Zucchini Blossoms

I planted Zucchini this season, but not for the vegetables, rather for the flowers. I give away the vegetable, but love fried Zucchini blossoms, especially when they are stuffed with a light ricotta. They are so delicate and flavorful it's like a little piece of Tuscan heaven.

Fried Zucchini flowers are perfect simply dipped in a light batter and pan fried, but this excellent recipe from Viviane of also uses fresh herbs from your garden. It doesn't get any better than this.
