Flower Fritters

•    4 cups flower petals: violets, roses, dandelions, calendula, ground ivy, clover
•    2/3 cup whole wheat flour
•    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
•    1 teaspoon honey
•    Pure olive oil

1.    Liberally coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with oil and place on a medium-high heat.
2.    Combine flour, eggs, and honey until well mixed. Okay to add a little more honey if needed.
3.    Add flowers to the mix.
4.    Using a small ladle or large spoon, put rounds or mounds of flower mix into the hot oil.
5.    Cook for 2-3 minutes on first side, then flip and cook for 2-3 more minutes on the second side, until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
6.    Blot excess oil off by placing on paper towels. Then slide them into the oven to keep them hot while you repeat the process until all the fritters are fried.
7.    Fancy: Serve with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, or vanilla ice cream.   

       Plain: Enjoy with a glass of cold chocolate milk.
