    Do you need to clean the florets inside the blossom or do you just chop the whole thing?
  2. Elsie L.
    Can you add meat to the banana blossom dish?

    This is good, Instructions are clear, it is simple to make. I just cut 5 banana blossoms from the yard and have been trying several recipes. Missy must grow all the same things I do as I keep bumping into her recipes to use the abundance from my yard.
