    These look delicious! I may have to plant some pumpkins this year :)

    I love daylily buds just before they bloom. l know they can be cooked somehow - maybe stir-fried - but I always lose patience and eat them raw. The open blooms would probably be yummy cooked your way. Something to try soon...

    These have to be fried while they are submerged in oil.

    By the way, this is my governess' idea, not mine.
