The incredible edible Kudzu!

[caption id="attachment_59" align="alignright" width="326"]A Kudzu bulb A Kudzu bulb[/caption] Whenever you drive down the interstate in Georgia you see this cool green vine stretched endlessly along power lines, walls and signs. It's Kudzu and it's encroaching mercilessly thru out the south. It's not a native plant species to the area and is largely considered a pest. Despite every effort to tame it, it just keeps coming back. It cant be beat. The secret to Kudzus resiliency is a big beefy bulb at the root base of the vine. It kind of looks like a long sweet potato. Every year the vine dies off but new green sprouts up from the bulb again like clockwork. These things are seemingly bullet proof and that's good news for you the prepper.  It turns out Kudzu is edible. I grew up in the south and had no idea, a SERE school instructor showed us in class and now I think about it every time I see the vine along an old brick wall. Atlanta is literally under attack by food! With a little elbow grease, you can dig up the bulb and throw them in a boil. They can weigh anywhere from 5lbs to 15lbs depending on the age of the plant. They are a little bitter but totally edible. Some restaurants are experimenting with new recipes as we speak in an effort to generate demand to help harvest Kudzu off the streets. You can Google plenty of recipes but in a pinch serve them up like mashed potatoes and you'll be ok. The next time you are out and about looking for a cool new prepper trick, bring home a Kudzu bulb and serve it up. It's everywhere and abundant, even in downtown Atlanta!
