Day Lily Fritters
We've been enjoying these for the past several weeks. They are still out there...

True to their name, Day Lily flowers only bloom for a day.

The smaller, green buds (in front) are best cooked like green beans. The larger buds (pale one in background) and flowers can be battered into fritters.

You can also use this batter to make fritters with slices of zuchini.

Buds and flowers - the finished product.
