There have been millions of words written on the zucchini flower. The forerunner of the ever-burgeoning mottled cylinder, is edible. More than edible, they’re delicious in an Earth Mother kind of way.
That which some just chuck away as waste, can in fact become this delectable antipasto, or be part of a pasta condiment or even a salad element (I never disdain fresh flowers tossed in with my salad greens). Now that they’re starting to bud on farmer’s markets everywhere, gather those blossoms while you can and prepare for yet another true Roman taste bud epiphany.
