Kudzu http://wfae.org en If You Can't Beat It, Eat It http://wfae.org/post/if-you-cant-beat-it-eat-it <p>News bulletin: kudzu is a food.</p><p>You can fry the leaves, chop it for casseroles and quiches, candy, jelly and more. Just as the folks at <a href="http://www.mayschapelmethodist.net/">May’s Chapel United Methodist Church</a> near Maiden. They’ve celebrated kudzu dishes for years. I dropped by there last month.</p><p>Of course most consider kudzu a scourge of the South, a once-welcomed Asian import to cure soil erosion, a monster whose tendrils choke trees, smother shrubs, and turn entire fields and hillsides into snake havens.</p> Thu, 11 Oct 2012 16:46:27 +0000 Tamra Wilson 13609 at http://wfae.org If You Can't Beat It, Eat It
