Chicory is a plant. Its roots and dried, above-ground parts are used to make medicine.

Chicory was also used as a preservative through out the coffee industry when being shipped into the US from foreign countries ... years and years ago. I don't particularly care for the taste of chicory when brewed in the coffee itself - it is rather bitter. But it is still being roasted and bagged as French Market Coffee here in New Orleans ... Coffee and Chicory.
Beautiful shot, by the way. I had never seen the actual plant.
Thanks, Chris

I didn't know much about chicory but have learned a lot since taking the picture. :) This pic was one blossom that was about to open. Thanks for the info and the nice comment Carole!! :)

P.S. I should have said that the "root" of the chicory is used in the brewing of the coffee.
