  1. Fantastic color! Are you going to make some native lemonade? Posted 8 months ago
    1. I will have to bring gloves with me if I'm going to harvest it. Every time I have attempted without gloves, it makes my skin feel like it is on fire!

      I would love to make lemonade and spice!

      1. Interesting - I wonder if it's the acids causing a reaction for you? No problem ingesting it? If you aren't big on the sourness, collecting the drupes after it rains makes them less sour. I've never used it as a spice. It's helpful to freeze the concentrate in cubes, then you can add them to any recipe calling for citrus throughout the year. But, sumacade is pretty tart and delicious too :) Posted 8 months ago
