Zucchini Blossoms

ucchini flowers (also called zucchini blossoms) are the edible flowers of the zucchini plant. These bright orange-yellow flowers open up and bloom to allow bees to transfer the sticky pollen from the male flowers to the female flowers. Once pollinated, the flowers close and a zucchini grows at the flower’s base. – Taste of Home

Zucchini Tian

A tian is a Provençal dish made of egg and vegetables that is ideal for summer picnics. It takes its name from the shallow terracotta dish it is traditionally cooked in. I use a cast iron skillet instead. The basic mix of vegetables is greens, herbs and potato; use what is cropping. You can add flavour with olives, capers, anchovies, a thickish tomato sauce and switch courgettes for spinach or chard, for instance.Gardenillustrated
