Coffee Alternatives

Love coffee? Would have a cow if you couldnt drink it?? Heres some coffee substitutes that will work in a pinch and you need something,anything that kinda tastes like coffee! No,they dont have the caffeine, but, we will pretend we dont know that.Anyway,your just trying to trick yourself with it. if you are down south,you probably know what chickory is,but, do you REALLY know? My Great Grandma knew of alot of these as she grew up in the depression and literally made it thru hard times from wildcrafting food.Coffee became scarce in the market during the wars and people needed that cup of joe...in any form.So the old ways were brought back from childhood memories and people used these alternatives...enjoy...
