Oh my! The daylilies were so glorious this morning!
You can use any type of daylily and this time of year where we live there are thousands of them all over the place that grow wild, but these are the ones in our yard.
In a bowl, combine 2 eggs, 1/4 cup milk, a pinch of salt, a teaspoon of sugar and a little grated nutmeg. In case you have never seen one, that little brown lump there is a nutmeg. :)
I picked 3 blossoms and let them sit on the counter for a while so any little hangers-on could escape. Then I shook them to make sure no one was left.
Melt 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil on medium heat.
Add enough unbleached flour to the egg mixture so it is as thick as pancake batter.
Coat the blossoms with the batter and fry them in the oil. Fry one side until nice and brown, and then cook the other side.
Here they are:
I like to eat them with a drizzle of raw honey.
I don't eat the hard little green stem part.
This is a favorite early summer treat for breakfast ~ quite delicious!
