What to Do With Squash Blossoms

After returning home from the market with my arms full of squash blossoms last weekend, I needed to find a use for all of them. When my Twitter-brained attempts to get Dania to come and split them with me failed, I started thinking of other ways to consume the bright yellow blossoms beyond frying them in oil. While the oil-fried variety is delicious, I can eat only two before I’m completely satisfied and full of warm cheese. A solution must be found.

Here are some of the other ways you can eat squash blossoms, should you find yourself with a number of them to go around.
