Method

The ways of cooking weeds are simple; the trouble is in cleaning them. Gathering the chicory with a stub of root in autumn or in spring, you scrape the root stubs with a knife, pick off old or yellowing leaves, and, plant by plant, throw them into a crock of rainwater. Change the water at least twice. Leave them in water till next day.
