chicory roots

I've just discovered wild chicory roots as a soothing winter drink.   I dug some this past summer and dried them but just now got around to actually making a drink.  I steeped the roots in boiling water for a while then poured the water into a cup, added honey and a bit of half and half.  It made a wonderful drink with the mix of bitter and sweet.   I had only enough roots for two cups and can hardly wait for summer when I can dig more.  Anyone else?
