Plants – Autumn Sumac

Autumn Sumach2

Sumac Tree

I live in the Northeast portion of the US. At this time of year the Sumac trees turn a brilliant red and their berries deepen to magenta. There are many uses for sumac trees. The articles I’ve linked to share some history and some ways to use sumac. Eat the Weeds – Edible Sumacs

  1. Sumac powder is used as a Middle Eastern Spice. I never knew it grew in North America though. I thought it was a spice used in the Levant.
    Do you use it in your cooking ?


    1. No, I’m not sure what variety it is. I know there is a poisonous kind, but I am one of the people who do not react to poisonous plants too much. I have heard this is not necessarily a good thing though. It is better to have an immune system that does react to poisons.
