Edible courgette flowers

These courgette flowers are on my courgette plants. The flowers are edible and can be harvested as long as there is enough of female flowers ones behind so that they fruit. The male ones are the ones with just long stem with no fruiting seen underneath. The flowers don’t stay open for long so they need to be harvested soon. The can be eaten raw in salads or baked stuffed with cheese and herbs.
