Stuffed Pumpkin Blossoms 【南瓜花酿】



Sometimes during the winter last year I bought a Japanese Kabocha pumpkin to cook and buried the seeds and rinds in my raised bed to compost. The seeds germinated and gave me 2 seedlings mid-spring.

I transplanted one of them in my front yard and was doing really well, the plant began to bloom around the end of June/early July with only male flowers, when the female flowers finally showed up (flowers with tiny fruits attached below the flowers), the pumpkin was officially in full bloom.

When one pumpkin plant was about to take over my entire front yard, I had to start trimming some shots and leaves to make it manageable. With that, I also harvest some male blossoms to make this stuffed pumpkin blossoms soup.

冬天的时候我家前院处于休耕状态,我会在天气比较暖和的时候翻翻土把厨遗埋到土里堆肥。去年冬天堆肥时埋下的日本南瓜种子今年春末时钻出土长出两棵小苗,我把一棵给了朋友,自己留了一棵种在前院里。

殊不知夏天时它越长越壮,不但把我前院覆盖满了,还开始蔓延到邻居的地里。某个周末趁有空我就把分支的苗修剪了炒蒜蓉吃。南瓜的雄花摘了做南瓜花酿,做汤非常清甜好吃,连俊宝都很喜欢呢!
