    Molly53's Note:

    Kudzu blooms the end of July through September. It has attractive bunches of delicate purple flowers with a fragrance reminiscent of grapes which may be used to make a unique jelly to spoon over cream cheese, or melt and serve over waffles and ice cream. Make sure picking area has not been sprayed with chemicals to kill the kudzu. Overnight steeping is not included in the preparation time. Posted in response to a forum topic.
