For me these were closer to 3 stars for flavor - though DH said a solid 4 star, but I gave them the higher level for an interesting ingredient and just being different. I was surprised how little "batter" there is, it was difficult to keep them together I ended up using a little extra flour and a little more oil then stated. The calendula didn't add any extra flavor but it looked good - almost like flecks of carrot - I would add more next time to see if it would give more flavor or try nasturtium. The corn gets a nice tasty toasty flavor but the batter part is fairly bland, some onion or garlic powder would help and an extra sprinkle of salt at the end was good. I did make some lime aioli for dipping and it was a really good accompaniment. May for "My Food Odyssey" - Angola<br/>'
