Zucchini blossoms signal a welcome summer wink in the garden.  Incredibly proliferative and easy to grow, many gardeners find themselves overwhelmed by the mass of what they’ve produced.

The beautiful thing about zucchini is that you can literally put it in most anything from appetizers, main dishes to desserts.  It can be manipulated and disguised to fool even the pickiest of eaters.

Throwing it on the grill is always a tasty option but there are many other delicious recipes to explore before you give it all away!
