  Sumac is one of the main spices of the middle east. It is the red
  sumac, however the flavor of the sumac here in the east US doesn't
  compare to the flavor of the Sumac of middle eastern coutnries. It
  maybe a different species, although it's similiar in appearance. The
  fruit is picked then grounded and is usually mixed with ground theyme
  to make the traditional Lebanese spices called Zaatar, which usually
  made into a pie. The Sumac there is tangy, has a sharp flavor. It's
  excellent used for treament of stomach problems. It's found in many
  middle eastern stores.
