Thought I would share tonight's side dish from dinner. Fresh picked from my own yard. And this is the second season I have had this. It is different and yummy too!

Fried Yucca Petals


  • 2 Fresh Tomatoes, Chopped
  • 2 Medium Onions, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • Flower Stalk From Yucca Plant
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Salt And Pepper, To Taste


Pull flower petals from stalk and wash well. Do not use anything other than the petal itself! I had a large mixing bowl full of petals that when picked and washed came to about 4 cups.
Melt butter in skillet and add flower petals, onion and tomatoes.
Stir gently until onions are soft.
Add water and simmer until most liquid is gone.
Salt and pepper to taste.


  1. That is interesting. I would have never thought of it!


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
