Fry Courgette/Zucchini





DH Ahaus gave me a baby zucchini plant. Little did I know it can bloom and flourish into a healthy plant with courgette flowers. It is easy to find zucchini or courgette but not the flower here at the market or supermarket. I could only see them served in chic restaurants.


I wanted to try fry these flowers. Or filled them with cheese or mushrooms, said DH Romania.




Today I learnt that courgette is a French name. Meanwhile Zucchini is Italian. Marrow is English. And they basically are the same thing from the cucumber family.







Today I learnt that there are male and female courgette flowers from DH France. And you only pick the males to cook.








These are males hanging out together.  




The females have a courgette fruit under their flowers as a base. 





How typical, the female always bears and carries the fruit, quipped DH Amsterdam.





Yes  I fried the males! Fried males are good! LOL!
