Only in season for a few summer months, the squash blossom is an ingredient you won’t want to miss! These colorful, edible flowers are produced on fruiting vines like pumpkin, zucchini, and other squashes. You won’t find them at supermarkets - only at the occasional farmer’s market, as these blossoms perish quickly. The best way to get them is straight from the garden!
Squash blossom’s mild floral flavor compliments a variety of recipes. Though you’re more likely to find them in ethnic cuisine, adventurous chefs love to make use of the blossom’s unique appearance and bright orange color. The dainty flower’s delicate texture and flavor are something you just have to experience!
If you want to try this rare summer ingredient, you don’t have to grow it yourself. We have our very own squash blossom garden here at Katie’s! Come try our squash blossom pizza or nibble on some delish ricotta stuffed fried squash blossoms as an appetizer. Stop on by or make a reservation by calling us at 314.942.6555!
Mark you calendars to make a difference in someone’s life by joining us for our next Giveback Tuesday on November 24 at our Rock Hill location! Due to the new St. Louis County COVID-19 restrictions, we will be limited to curbside pickup and limited patio seating. Our indoor dining will be closed until further notice.
