I developed a sudden aversion to caffeine during my pregnancy, but I hated decaf. Then I had chicory on a visit to New Orleans. I still make it for my evening ‘coffee’. I use about ⅔ tsp ground chicory for one cup. I brew it the same way as coffee. Sometimes I add some nutmeg to give it a kick. Just keep in mind that chicory is stronger and should not be over-brewed.

My mama made this classic New Orleans black coffee: 4 tablespoons of coffee and half that amount of chicory with a pinch of salt (you heard that right) — put this in the filter of your coffee drip. Moisten this and then add ½ a cup of hot water to the filter. Let it drip. When it finishes, add another ½ cup and repeat the process till you have 4 cups. If you want Café au Lait, just add milk.

I add one part chicory to two parts coffee and make it in my French press. It’s a nice strong cup of coffee!
