Dandelion Fritters

I remember when we first moved to Springfield Maine, a lady in our community had deep fried dandelion flowers and dropped them off to us to try. They were very good. They kind of tasted like fried clams..
This simple recipe, dandelion flowers are coated with a batter and then fried to perfection. To prepare the flowers, harvest them fresh when they are fully open and remove the green bracts. Fry them up as soon as possible so that the flowers are still nice and open.
They are delicious!

Dandelion Fritters

1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup corn meal
1 egg
dash of sea salt,
generous amount of an oil that can withstand high heat.

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the egg and mix well.
Dip the flower blossoms into the mix and fry in hot oil until golden.
Let cool slightly and enjoy!
