A Cup of Chicory Coffee Anyone?
During WWII from March 1940 you couldn't get real coffee because of the rationing. So people drank this stuff. Kaffesurrogat. Made from Chicory. So did I yesterday. At the old alehouse/district court building in Västerhaninge. These days that building is used by the homestead society, Haninge Hembygdsgille. I also enjoyed Kronans kaka. The recipe dates back to 1903, ingredients includes potatoes and almond. Served with lemon sauce. I also got a rye biscuit. All for 20SEK. Why? Because yesterday was a European Heritage Day.
