For part of my story, the main character will be living in an area that's infested with Kudzu. To manage the overgrowth, the town around her has resorted to eating it. Now, I know it's possible to eat "The vine that ate the South" but I'm having trouble finding just what sorts of foods you can turn Kudzu into. My research so far has yielded "Japanese sweets" and "fried kudzu leaves" but I want to know if it can be made into things like bread and pasta, seeing how it's a starch. Basically, I want to try and turn it into these people's main food source. Maybe someone who lives in a Kudzu-infested area can help me?
