To make the Fried Squash Blossoms recipe in FC #106, the delicate flowers need a little prep. Begin by inspecting the blossoms for insects, and then wash and gently pat them dry. Insert your index finger into each blossom to snap off and remove the stamen. Don’t worry if the petals tear slightly in the process.
