INSTRUCTIONS:

1- Prepare the zucchini flowers by inspecting each flower for dirt, or bugs (little critters do like to hide inside them). Remove the pistil from inside each flower. I also like to remove the little green spikes from around the stem of the flowers.

2- Put in the chopped fresh pepper in a bowl add the grated cheddar cheese, and salt, balack pepper-red pepper flakes to taste. Use a fork to gently beat the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the plain flour, graham flour, the mineral water. Add salt, the pepper flakes to taste and stir to combine. The mixture should be slightly thicker than a pancake batter. If needed, add in a bit more mineral water. Stuff your blossom with the mixed cheese and set aside.

3-Pour enough vegetable oil into a medium skillet to coat the bottom by about a 1/4, heat over medium high heat. Coat your stuffed zucchine flowers with the battered and drop into the hot oil. Use the back of a spoon to flatten each fritter slightly. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the fritter over, and brown the other side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Serve while hot. Enjoy it!
