Wild Garlic Flowers.

Try this wonderful recipe that I created with them.

FRIED WILD GARLIC FLOWERS

Make a Tempura batter. mix half flour & half cornflour. Add fizzy water & mix it all until it’s a thin dropping, lump-free mixture.

Dip the flowers in head first and drop in a pan of hot oil. flip them over after about a minute and cook for about another 30 seconds.

Drain on kitchen paper.

They go hard & crunchy & taste like garlicy floral crisps.  A delicious snack or addition to a salad meal.

I’m going to try the recipe with some other edible flowers.
