Sumac foraging has started in ernest. Cold steeped Sumac tea with just a pinch of dried hibiscus flower makes the most refreshing summer drink when you’re hot and tired. We have Smooth Sumac in this area which the majority of people consider a weed. Anti-fungal, anti-microbial and antioxidant are just a few of the benefits from spending a few hours outside.
I need to learn how to better identify red sumac… I love the pink lemonade flavor.
