A sugar pumpkin flower dipped in sweet batter, fried and dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar. Yum.
This time I found the end had a slight bitter taste. I gathered the flowers a little later after drunken bees had wedged themselves into the middle. I gently shook them out of the flower. But I wonder if this was why the ends were slightly bitter - just a touch. It was hardly noticeable.
However, I'm removing the stamens now, just in case.
