More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

  Hi Doak ,   Here in Canada the grocery stores sell a product which I believe you may find comparable to Postum  It is called "Caf-Lib" .   This year we had a bumper crop of beets in the garden .  My wife and I decided to try making our own coffee substitute By shredding and roasting it on cookie trays lined with bakers parchment paper at 375 d. F. in the oven  .  To that we added roasted pot barley ( the kind used for adding to soup ), and roasted wheat , all in equal parts .  Everything was roasted till it was coffee brown colored .  Then it was ground 2 handfuls at a time in the blender .   We make it in our automatic drip coffemaker just like we would make regular coffee .  Sure its a lot of work , but its wintertime and my spouse and I enjoy having a project like this that we can do together . Smiley .  We call the beverage "BWEET" .  Susan says to tell you  " We quite like it ! "  It has a pleasant flavor and is soothing to the stomache .  Hope this helps .
  On another note , do you suppose that when Moses came down Mt. Sinai with the stone tablets which contained the 10 commandments and found the Isrealites worshipping a golden idol ;  Do you think maybe that was the first ever recorded need for "de-calf-a-nation"  ?  grin

             ---Burl---  If your coffee tastes like mud , perhaps it's because it was fresh ground this morning .

The sad truth is, they don't make it anymore.  Cry  My wife looked high and low, online, everywhere.  She even contacted Post about it:  don't make it, no plans to start making it again.  We even added our names to a "petition" to get them to make it again, but to no avail.  I heard you can make a substitute by burning toast and scraping it into a cup, but I never tried it.

If there not making the postum brand what or who replaced it?  I know that postum was used as a replacement for coffee by the mormon church. Surely there is a comparable brand on the market that is still in use.   Dandy blend sounds just like the ealier posts recipe

:-XBLECH!  Chickory tastes nothing like Postum. Given the choice between boiled chickory root or boiled 2 day old socks, I'd take the dirty socks!  tongue

The nice part is, guess what? I have plenty wild dandelions growing here and there. Another plus is the bloom all year here. Bees take pollen from them when there is nothing else. I'll just make me some beds and gather some seed. The greens are also good for me. Any way you would fix other greens. cool :)doak
