When collecting the zucchini flowers that you will make stuffing, you need to collect them early in the morning. The reason is that the flowers have opened in the morning hours, so that they can be cleaned more easily and filled.
You can also prepare the stuffing in advance and clean the zucchini flowers collected in the morning, fill them and store them in the freezer. When you want to cook, you can take them out and cook them 15 minutes in advance.
