Golden Vegetable Tempura

All daylilies (not to be confused with tiger lilies) are edible
except Liluim Daylilies, but all do not taste the same. Fresh,
the flowers and leaves can be used for soups, salads, stir frys,
steamed or deep fried. To dry, pick the buds when they are elongated,
place the buds on a screen. When thoroughly dry, place in an
airtight container. Soaking in cold water, thirty minutes revitalizes

Half opened buds are great for stuffing with herbed cheese as are
squash blossoms.

fresh vegetables
1 egg
1 cup all purpose flour
half opened Day Lily blossoms
peanut or safflower oil
Optional vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, eggplant, green
pepper, onions and green onions, pea pods, sweet potatoes, squash

Do not use vegetables with a high water content like tomatoes,
cabbage, etc. Cut vegetables into bite size pieces and place in
ice water.

Remove stamen from daylilies, place in ice water. Soak fifteen
minutes. In a medium bowl mix together egg, flower and 1 cup ice
water, till well mixed but slightly lumpy. Heat oil in a deep
fryer until 375 degrees. Remove a few pieces of veggies/flowers
at a time, patting dry, then roll in batter, then fry until golden
brown. Drain well, keep it all warm and serve immediately.
