My mom has some Japanese squash, zucchini and eggplant plants. This season has been a bit disappointing, but the plants are flowering and I was thinking of picking the ones that aren't fruiting. I've seen talk on here about eating the blossoms. My question: When/what size should I pick them? Before cooking, do i need to prepare them a certain way?
One of my reservations is that the squash plant and flowers are rather prickly.... any suggestions?
