You might think we’re a little crazy including edible flowers in the co-op style produce shares this Saturday. But yes, there will be local Texas squash blossoms from Gundermann Acres! And they’re not only edible, but delicious.
Along with the arrival of summer squashes this season are their dainty, edible flowers. The bright orange blossoms sold at farmers’ and specialty markets are generally from zucchini plants, though the flowers of other summer squashes may be eaten, as well. The blossoms are often served fried – a dish we will never turn down, but there are several other ways to fully enjoy the beautiful color and delicate texture and flavor of this summer ingredient.
Please don’t waste these beauties! Wow your family and friends with a tasty appetizer or side dish using your squash blossoms. We’ve made it easy on you – just prepare them using one of these ideas below. They’d be perfect with the Caprino Royale goat cheese from Waco that we sell in the store!
