My pumpkin patch is coming along quite nicely this year. I think I will actually be able to grow a few good ones (assuming, of course that it doesn’t snow in September again!). I have so many blossoms that I needed to start taking them off of the plant so that the energy can be put into making nice big pumpkins instead of a bunch of small ones.
I know that pumpkin blossoms are kind of a delicacy so I decided that I needed to do something with my blossoms instead of simply throwing them away.
I had a dinner thing to go to and I needed to bring a few appetizers. I made stuffed pumpkin blossoms.
1 can of tuna
2 Tbsp of plain yogurt
1 hard boiled egg (chopped up)
Chives (as many as you want)
Mix all of the above ingredients together and GENTLY scoop into well-washed blossoms. Top with a slice of cherry tomato.
They were definitely a hit!
