Sumac Berries, Ground - Wild Harvest from the Appalachian Mountains

  • $1.79

Smooth Sumac,

The Red Sumac Berries can be used for Raw Sumac Spice, Sumac Lemonade, Sumac Tea & Sumac Seasoning. Sumac Herb can be made using only Sumac Tea, or, using accommodating admixture plants such as Blackberry Leaves,  Mulberry Leaves or Ground Ginger root.

These are early season berries. A bit less citrus ( still sour) with a noticeably more earthy flavor. 

The taste of Sumac Berries is a medium to strong citrus. Tasting a handful of raw berries will surely cause a big "sour face" smile! Your getting a big whammy of sour acids including Malic acid, citric acid, fumaric acid and ascorbic acid.

Foraged by the " Tame the Spirit" team in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. No smog, no pollution and rich, nutrient filled soil provide the perfect environment for harvesting all natural, non GMO, wild herbs.

Packaged in sealed retail foil pouch, always guaranteed fresh or your money back! 

There are around 35 species of Sumac Trees ( Rhus glabra ), with Poison Sumac being most well known, although most sumac's are NOT poisonous. In fact over a half dozen varieties, including Smooth Sumac, are not only edible but they are packed with Vitamins, Minerals and Micronutrients which contain high antioxidant activity. I could write pages on the herbal use of Sumac. Sumac Herb & Sumac Extract have been used for hundreds of years and continues to be a favorite among herbalists around the world.

Sumac Powder as a spice is common in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking often mixed with salt. Other recipes we have found include using as a salad topping, sumac sauce, as a spice on fish, seafood and the most common, Sumac-Aid or Sumac Lemonade!
