When I was a child, living in Germany we had a tree that was called ESSIGBAUM.. I think it was the same tree! We made PINK/RED Lemonade with the fruits.. Mmmm... Like the candy idea!
I drank Sumac tea years ago at a Festival. It was in a 'Survival/nature' type booth. Also when the fruit is ripe it makes a nice sour candy just by picking a few of the berries off and sucking off the tangy furry bit and then spitting them out.
I see it is used to make a sour drink just like sumac spice!
Ah you're right, thanks.
I think this is staghorn sumac - Rhus typhinahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staghorn_su...
It's the same genus Christiane but different species.http://www.apinchof.com/sumac1114.htm
Yes, they grow in North America as well as Africa and a few other places.
Is this the plant from which the sumac spice comes from?? If so I am surprise to see them growing in Canada?!?!
