Acacia Blossom Fritters
Step 1: Fritter Batter
Begin by making the yeast starter. First, dilute the yeast with lukewarm water. Form a well in the flour, pour in the warm water containing the yeast and mix until smooth.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour in a moderately warm place.
With a whisk, mix together the egg yolks, water, cornstarch, some salt and the saffron.
Whip the cream.
Mix the rested yeast starter into the saffron mixture, and add the whipped cream.
Step 2: Fritters
Remove any wilted flowers and cut off the base of the bunch.
Coat each bunch of flowers in the fritter batter.
Plunge into grapeseed oil heated to 340°F (170 °C).
Once nice and golden, remove the fritters and pat dry with paper towels to eliminate any excess fat.
