Tempura Chive Blossoms
« on: June 03, 2016, 12:24:46 AM »
I realized we had a lot of chives blossoming. It was the work of a moment to understand I should cut off the blossoms, dip them in tempura batter and fry them. Obviously I made a wasabi mayonnaise to dip them in.

If someone asks you a question, wasabi mayo is rarely a bad answer.

^^ No joke.  I actually make my own mayos/aiolis on occasion . Probably not as good as yours, but tasty.

I doubt they're not as good as mine. If your into making something you get really good at it. I know lots of less experienced cooks that make quite a  few things better than me. One thing I really enjoy about cooking and homewbrewing is that if your open minded you can learn from everyone.

Wow, this sounds great. There's a new variety of chive I've been seeing in some of the gardening catalogs that has "petals" that are actually more like mini chive stems. That would be insane in a dish like this:
