Zucchini flowers with anchovies and melty cheese

For the batter you'll need:
100 gr of beer (or water, ut beer's better, you get to drink the rest while cooking) 
150 gr of flower
2 eggs
a pinch of salt 
a pinch of pepper
(enough batter for 15 flowers, but you can use it for cauliflowers, zucchini, onions...) 
Wash the flowers thoroughly, taking out the stems and cutting off the leafstalk.  
Wash the salt off the anchovies , cut thin slices of the cheese you plan to stuff the flowers with. Mozzarella does fine.
Cover them in batter and have a pan full of boiling oil waiting. Better if frying oil. 
Stuff anchovies in flowers, (one each) and the cheese. Cover them in batter, carefully because they easily rip and let all the stuffing out while cooking. 
Fry them about 5/7 minutes.
