Fiori di zucca ripieni- "Fichi"

(Filled pumpkin flowers)

This was a course typical of Marradi used as breakfast during the threshing.

  • Open pumpkin flowers
  • 3 hectograms of "ricotta"
  • finely chopped garlic and parsley
  • 1 hectograms of Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg yolks

Prepare a mixture with parsley, garlic, Parmesan cheese, "ricotta" and egg yolks, then fill the flowers after having taken away the yellow pistil. Close them very carefully, dip them in flour and then dip them in a batter made with egg, flour and water. Fry them in a pan with very hot oil. It is possible to cook them in tomato sauce, by adding some mashed tomatoes and chopped garlic and parsley.
