Among the many pleasures in tending one’s own garden is having daily access to numerous gold and pale green squash blossoms which must rank at the top when it comes to luxurious culinary specialties.

Though elegant enough for the fanciest of dinner parties, these pretties were simply eaten on the patio deck served alongside glasses of chilled wine set upon small hors d’ oeuvre plates to hover over while holding the top of the just fried flower using ones fingers, savoring each of the small bites once momentarily drained on a paper towel covered platter.
