Fried Zucchini Blossoms

For years I've wanted to try this.  I would always see pictures in cooking magazine & thought it looked so good.  Well, I finally gave it a go; and ya know what, these are pretty dang good.  They have a great texture & flavor.  And they look so cool.  Since I couldn't keep up with my zucchini, what better way to control it that to snip the blossoms.  And then of course fry them up, dip 'em in ranch & eat them.  You got to give 'er a go, it's a fun way to eat "zucchini"& a creative way to slow down your gardens production.  Here's how...
8 zucchini blossoms
2 cups frying batter (boxed or homemade)
canola oil
Fill a medium skillet with about 2 inches of oil.  Heat over medium heat until about 350 degrees.  Dip zucchini blossoms in frying batter until fully coated & set into hot oil.  Fry about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.  Remove from oil & set on a paper towel to drain.  Salt & pepper to your liking immediatly while blossoms are still hot & add a slight dusting of paprika. Enjoy!
