What’s that song?

And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high”?

Yes, It’s summertime, sun is shining and zucchinis are blooming. Not all of them were meant to become a zucchini. Only female flowers produce fruits. All parts of zucchini are absolutely edible. Some people remove pestle from the male flower before eating, I see no reason. Have done that and it does not taste any different, so I just skip that step. It pairs amazingly with a crisp glass of white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. The batter is very light and crispy. I hope you’re gonna enjoy as much as we do!
