I imagine that the sumac berries may be purchased as not all of us live a sumac growing area.
- cones of freshly picked sumac
- 3 c
- of fresh cold water
- honey or any sweetening you prefer (optional)
Ripe sumac has a dark velvet color.
Also ensure that you don’t pick the Sumac cones immediately after rain since it tends to wash away the flavor.
You’d want about 1 cup of water for each cone.
