Kudzu Apple Cider
by dave

from Chicago, IL

I received a request for kudzu recipes...

The kudzu powder gives a silky smooth texture without a starchy taste.

1 1/2 teaspoons kudzu powder
6 1/4 cups apple cider, divided
4 (3-inch) sticks cinnamon
12 whole cloves
1 teaspoon grated orange rind

COMBINE kudzu powder and 1/4 cup apple cider, stirring well; set kudzu powder aside.

COMBINE remaining 6 cups apple cider and next 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven, and bring apple cider mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.

POUR apple cider mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding spices. Return liquid to Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Add kudzu powder mixture, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until mixture is translucent. Serve hot.

Yield: 6 cups.
