Sumac lemonade

Filed under:General — eric @ 11:24 am

Sumac “lemonade” can be made by soaking a stalk of tightly-packed red sumac berries in a pitcher of cold water overnight. If you use hot water, you’ll get more tannin in your drink. Strain through several layers of cheesecloth to remove the berries and their hairs. Sweeten and drink. One source says to drink the sumac lemonade right after making it as the flavor changes rapidly. You can also make a hot drink with the berries and flavor it with maple syrup.
