Sunday in Iowa

Chicory wildflowers grow along road and highway edges all over in Iowa...this gravel road is in Madison County between De Soto and Winterset
Chicory flowers and young leaves are edible, and the roots can be dried and roasted and used as a coffee-like beverage.

  1. Chicory coffee granules are still sold here in the UK. I remember my grandmother using this coffee substitute many years ago.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
