Fried Pumpkin Blossoms

Betty R


Many years ago my hubby, me and the kids went to visit his aunt in Atlanta, Ill. and she had these lovely fried blossoms as a side dish and we went nuts over them. When I asked her what they were she said if she told me we may not want them, well that made my curiousness go crazy and begged her for the recipe. I had lost the recipe over the years and just found it, the very same recipe on the Heritage Farms site.

How to Make Fried Pumpkin Blossoms


  1. Cut your pumpkin blossoms off where the pumpkin starts on; take the center out and wash well. Make a batter of the milk, eggs, salt and pepper, and dip the blossoms in this batter; then in the cracker crumbs or cornmeal (it may be easier to sprinkle the crumbs or cornmeal on because the flowers are delicate) and fry until light brown. Serve hot.
