Finally, I've made some. Only 6 half pints but it's a start.
To me it has the taste of strawberry and grape jam. It's delicious.
Pick some kudzu flowers (make sure the kudzu plant hasnt been sprayed). 4 Cups of flowers equals to 6 half pints.
By the way, If you are not a fan of spiders and other creepy crawlies this will not be a fun step.
Next take the flowers and give them a good cold water washin' Again if there's an issue with bugs I'd do this outside with a waterhose. I'm only slightly unnerved by spiders but still all those little bugs had me watching where I put my hands.
The flowers are in long clusters. And you only want the flower so when they're cleaned off just pull the flower clusters through your hand and all the flowers will pop off. You will end up with something like this
After it's soaked for atleast 8 hours, strain the liquid into a pot and discard the flowers. The water should be a reddish brown. Add package of pectin and a tablespoon of lemon juice and bring to a boil constantly stirring.
Then add in 5 Cups of sugar and bring back to a boil, again stirring constantly. And allow to boil for 1 minute.
Take it off the heat and scoop off the foam. Then pour into hot jars, wipe lip of the jar, and seal.
Then process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
Cool on a rack.
