    Ingredients

    Squash Blossoms, water, salt, citric acid.

    Squash blossoms are the large flowers produced by squash, zucchini and pumpkin plants. The squash plant produces both male and female blossoms, and the male blossoms are preferred for their larger size. The mild flavor of these flowers allows them to be used in a wide variety of culinary applications.

    The flavor of squash blossoms is similar to that of the squash itself, but more subtle. Squash blossoms are used in several traditional Italian and Mexican dishes, in which they are typically either sliced and added to soups, salads or the fillings of quesadillas, or stuffed and deep-fried as an appetizer or garnish.
