Uncle Art's Recipe for Fried Squash Flowers

Today I had a much-needed vacation day. I went fabric shopping with my sister Lenore. She came over with a beautiful bouquet of squash flowers from her garden.

When Chris and I were first married I worked as manager of an ice cream store that was very close to where my Godparents lived. Once and a while I would get a call my Godfather, Uncle Art, asking if I could stop by on my way home from work. He had something for me. I love my Aunt and Uncle and I would do anything they asked of me. I would pull up to the house and my Uncle would pop out of the kitchen and give me a greasy paper bag. It was filled with Fried Squash Flowers. Oh, the aroma! Oh, the grease! I would eat the whole bag while I drove home. Ah, memories.

Fortunately, I had asked my Uncle for his recipe. Here it is -
 The batter -
 The flowers ready for the batter, remember to remove the piston.
 Frying-

 Sprinkle with salt as soon as you remove the flowers from the oil!!!!!
 This was a perfect vacation day dinner! Yes, that is fresh corn on the cob from Cole's Farm Stand!
