Fleur de courgette, avant et après

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen the flower of a zucchini before.

Zucchini flowers, also known as fleur de courgette in French

In France they’re sold with the flower in order to make beignets de fleurs de courgette, or fried zucchini flowers. It’s something of a specialty in Provence.

We got the ones above at a place near our apartment, but they were mostly fried dough, so we’ll have to find some better ones on our next trip. Or maybe I’ll luck out and get some zucchini flowers in my veggie box this summer? This Fleurs de Courgette Farcies recipe looks pretty awesome.
