So I just harvested, cleaned, and peeled some chicory root. I want to use it in ways besides coffee substitutes. I know Kind bars and other food bars contain it, and I'd also like to make it into chicory flour. Can anyone help, at least tell me how to dry it.

I haven't used chicory root, but Green Deane has an article. Methods of prep are at the bottom of his articles.

I have used dandelion roots in soups.
For drying, I would thinly slice it and lay the pieces in a single layer.
