My daily picture – The blue beauty

Filiform and elegant, chicory is a “true celebrity” due to its therapeutic qualities. It is high up to one meter, with blue flowers. Underground it develops a strong root in which are deposited the plant’s reserves.  From the chicory root, if it is  fried and then crushed, a dark powder is obtained. This powder is often used as a coffee substitute.  It has  digestive and nerve tonic effects.

This is just one of the many uses of this miraculous plant.
