Pumpkin Blossom Fritters        
(Adapted From Native Foods )

4 dozen large Pumpkin blossoms
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin powder
2 - 3 cups finely ground cornmeal 
oil for deep frying

If you're a gardener or truck farmer, you can do this; otherwise you'll not find blossoms. 
Farmers must thin the blossoms of these vines, because the vine can support only a couple of pumpkins .
But they don't usually bring the flowers to market.
Perhaps you can persuade a local grower to give you some,
hopefully you have your own growing in the back yard.  

Rinse and pat blossoms dry. 
In a shallow bowl, beat eggs with milk, chili, salt, cumin.
Dip blossoms in egg mix, then roll gentle in cornmeal. 
Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to set coating. 
Heat 2 " of oil in a deep saucepan to hot but not smoking (375). 
Fry blossoms a few at a time until golden, drain on paper towels. Keep warm in 250 oven until ready to serve.
