The beignet d'Acacia is a typical recipe from the French Riviera where the Acacia tree are aboundant.

The flowers have a sweet scent similar to orange flowers.

 

 

We have an acacia tree growing at the edge of our garden, but I wouldn't consider us lucky.

In fact, Acacia trees are very invasive and spread all over the garden.

Its branches have needles, so be careful when you remove the flowers.

The Acacia fritters recipe is featured in episode 5 of the video series:

Spring Starters/Spring Started in the Cote d'Azur.

    How very interesting!!! I wonder what would be a good sub for this in the United States? Do we have Acacia trees? Im from the midwest and I know we do not have them here, but I seem to remember them maybe being in the southwest/dessert

      I don’t think you have any Acacia trees on the East Coast, maybe on the West. I wouldn’t know what could substitute them in USA. I will find out.
