Benefits of Endives
History of Endives
Endive was unintentionally found by the Belgian farmer about 1830. At that time, chicory roots were utilized like a coffee alternative. The farmer saved them in a cellar, forgot about them and, while he came back to get the roots, learned that theyd sprouted white leaves. Curious, he consumed several and located them to be soft, damp, crispy as well as somewhat bitter.
