To make the bat­ter, whisk the egg in a glass or ce­ramic bowl that has been in the fridge for an hour. Add the cold wa­ter or beer and whisk again. Add the flour and salt and mix gen­tly with the whisk but not too much. You want to just barely mix it – a few lumps is ok. Dip each flower into the bat­ter and care­fully lower it into the hot oil. Once the flow­ers are lightly browned on one side, turn them over. They don't take very long to cook. Re­move each bat­tered flower as soon as it is ready onto a pa­per towel-lined plate. Serve im­me­di­ately with a spicy dip, like the nas­tur­tium one on the next page.
