The chicory arrived in two days!  I had my first mug of it last night and it was delicious!  I did add cream and a teensy bit of sugar and I'm pleased to say it's a great substitute for coffee.  Thanks so much, Dianne for introducing this subject and thanks to you Deblynne3 for the nutsonline web site.  I shall definitely be drinking chicory every day, now!  I am sooooo happy!

In the "live foods" category, Chicory is a diamond food for us, but Chicory ROOT, that is sold at NUTSONLINE.com is a black dot for me.

Where to find fresh Chicory leaves, and steep those in our tea?

What a wonderful thread! Another big plus for herbal treatment! I saw where chicory was a live food diamond for me, but I just hadn't gotten into anything about it yet. I hate coffee and always have but this sounds very interesting even if I have to take it in a capsule. Thanks, Dianne, for your post about this wonderful herb!

I'm using the Geno type book right now and I'm a gatherer.  Chicory root is listed as a bene under live foods on page 213.


I haven't seen the leaves, but have you tried iherb.com?  They have alot of stuff. I'll ask my HFS if she knows of brands that might carry it. I'll be by there tonight. Untill then maybe someone else will know.

This is interesting. I'm finding mostly root. Which I believe grows wild here in Arkansas.  I found a place that sales chicory leave seeds. They make it sound like a special type. It grows like lettuce.  Now I'm not sure what the chicory that we are using the root looks like, but there are many pic online that I can look ant. I think I'll order the seeds, and I will learn what that plant should look like. (if it grows) Then I'd know for sure it they are one and the same. Then perhaps I can find the chicory root plant it in the wild. They might not even be the same plant.  

I will keep look for a brand of dried leaves.

Got my chicory this morning from nutsonline....Had a cup with breakfast...black....thought it was pretty
sweet as it was....It's good..I can't say I'm crazy about it...Was never a coffee lover....It's good for a change from herbal tea...and it does make a pretty good genoharmonic combo...

I did buy chicory in the supermarket....looks like strange curly lettuce...I think I read that radicchio
is in the same family as chicory....bought some of that too....chopped them together...made a salad
dressing....a little on the bitter side....but still edible.

deblynn3.....here's some images of chicory.  Have to admit, the plant I bought in the supermarket
didn't resemble any of these photos...

I kind of think chicory as  raw green salad vegetable would be best used in combination with a lot of other salad greens.  It's got a strong bitter flavor.

After reading this thread, just ordered some from 'sweet marias' in california.  Two pounds ground and roasted for $13.50.  I am anxious to try it!  If it tastes anything like coffee, I will be thrilled.

Chloe,   I'll be keeping my eyes open this spring, I've seen flowers that look very much like those in the pics.  They are very much like dandelion.  I've noticed many of the greens for gatherers are bitters, so I'm not surprised it is a ben. for me.

According to Typebase, Radicchio is a "red-leafed Italian chicory"; but I don't know if that's what your SWAMI is referring to.

My mistake, chicory ground from Sweet Marias was $9.50 for two pounds.  The Nigerian coffee was $13.50.  It is delicious.

Do you have the site address for them? I like nuts on  line but the price is right, and I order enough from them anyway.
