Fried fresh baby marrow flowers are healthy meal.
Make the batter by beating all the ingredients together. Allow it to stand for half an hour. Meanwhile, mix the cheese, herbs and olive oil. Clean the baby marrows with a wet cloth. It is better not to wash them in water, because the delicate flowers will wilt. Open each flower and pinch out the stamens.
Roll the cheese into balls and stuff each flower. Carefully fold the tops closed, and set aside.
Sprinkle the flowers and baby marrows with flour.
Dip them in the batter and deep-fry in hot oil until golden brown and crisp (test the temperature of the oil with a little of the batter- it should colour within 30 seconds.)
Eat immediately as a starter or as a crispy snack with creamy soup.
