I purchased ground Chicory Root from Nuts.com. The price wasn’t that bad at $6.99 per lb, but the shipping was a little high at $10. Although I maximized it by ordering a few other things. It didn’t bring up the shipping by that much.
My friend is from New Orleans and he swears by Chicory/Coffee blends. I figured I’d try it without coffee first, and see how that goes. I really like it, and I don’t see any reason to add coffee if I don’t need it for taste. Especially decaf.
I was thinking about adding fresh peppermint tea to it. (Also purchased from Nuts.com) I wonder if adding a fresh ground Hazelnut would be good. I don’t really enjoy eating them, but I really like the flavor in stuff.
