    Re: chicory

    Scrapple : An article of food made by boiling together bits or scraps of meat, usually pork, and flour or Indian meal.

    Chicory - a bitter-flavoured European herb. The leaves are used as salad; the root is roasted and ground, used either as a coffee substitute or added to coffee.

    Re: chicory

    Thaks, Anglika.
    Does Indian meal refer to corn?

    I googled the pictures of chicory, and it looked like lettuce except that lettuce shapes a little bit round. So, are they related? Here, we call them the same name sometimes.

    Re: chicory

    Lettuce and Chicory are both of the Asteraceae (daisy) family, though I don't think I regard them as very closely related. Chicory, endive and radicchio are more closely related.

    Yes, Indian meal refers to maize (corn).
