When Nature Hands You Sumac, Make Sumac Lemonade!

Crane's Pond, Westfield, Mass.
Christine Alger over at the Plastic Revolution blog has an excellent post on the many culinary possibilities of red (or staghorn) sumac, a prolific plant here in Western Massachusetts.

Sumac lemonade, sumac meringue pie, and mulled sumac are a few of the recipes Christine shares, as well as fare made with other natural ingredients, like dandelion coffee and black birch tea.

Although we've known here at EWM about the benefits of locally grown natural edibles for years, we haven't tried red sumac yet. With Christine's recipes in hand, maybe this is the year!

Here's a link to the post:
