Squash blossoms are not only beautiful but this lovely flower is edible. It’s the flower part of the Cucurbita family and has a mildly sweet flavor. It’s extremely tender and wonderful stuffed, fried, baked, or sautéd. Squash blossoms have a very short shelf life so you want to prepare them within a day of harvest. Male and female flowers can be used interchangeably, however, leaving the female flowers will allow the plant to produce actual fruit so harvesting the male flowers only is best.
