No, I& not talking about the wild stuff growing in your backyard that once gave you an itchy rash. While it is related, the sumac I& talking about is far from poisonous, and makes a wonderfully delicious addition to any spice cupboard.
Free for the taking (be sure to get staghorn sumac with red berries, not poisonous sumac with white/light green berries). It makes a yummy "lemonade", a nice lemony tea and adds tang to fish & to Indian & Mediterranean cuisine
