Chicory

Definition: Chicory


Chicory
Not to be mistaken for its cousin, endive, chicory is a vegetable with curly bitter tasting leaves that are used as an ingredient in a salad or cooked as greens. The ground, roasted roots are often used as a coffee substitute or added to coffee for more body and aroma.

Cafe DeMonde coffee is the best! Chicory is pretty easy to grow and oh so tasty in a salad.
