Gift of Kudzo Jelly

Kudzu Jelly from Momof3.

I will have to make rolls in the next few days to see what jelly made from flowers tastes like. Should be lots of fun. She posted the receipt on MJF. So I think it is OK to show it here: It is written here exactly as she posted it there.

Here is the recipe for Kudzu Blossom Jelly. It is very easy and very delicious!! One of my favorites.

4 cups Kudzu blossoms (make sure you pick in an unsprayed patch!! If you are not sure, you can pretty much count on any county spraying anything near the road.)
4 cups boiling water
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 package powdered pectin
5 cups sugar

Wash blossoms in a sink of cold water. Place in a large, non-metallic bowl and pour boiling water over the top. Place a plate on top to submerge blossoms and refrigerate overnight.

Strain liquid into a large pot and discard spent blossoms.
Add to the liquid the lemon juice and pectin. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Add sugar and return to a rolling boil, stirring constantly and boil 1 minute.
Remove from heat and skim off any foam that may have formed. Ladle into sterilized 1/2 pint jars. Clean edges and put on lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
Makes 6- 1/2 pint jars of jelly

PS- The liquid will be a grayish color until you add the lemon juice, then it turns a beautiful rosy color.

Good luck!!


I will never be able to make this because kudzu doesn't grow in Utah. So it is a little taste of the south.
