after my allergy shots tonight i went by the cambrian farmers market. i got a nice box of squash blossoms that was supposed to be $3.00 for 10 but ended up being $3.00 for 13. i guess someone at the farm can't count. anyway, i have been wanting to try this since i read about it in one of my italian food magazines. i had some mozzarella medallions in the fridge.
after gently washing the blossoms i stuffed them with mozzarella, then i made up a batter from flour, pellagrino, an egg, garlic salt, and fresh ground mixed peppercorns and dipped each one in it.
i fried them one at a time in a small pan of vegetable oil and drained them on a paper towel.
once the excess oil was drained i plated them and sprinkled them with a little gray sea salt.
the taste testers of team barbie have pronounced them yummy and requested more. :)
