Sumacs of the genus Rhus have that quality however Staghorn Sumac (Rhus
hirta) is generally preferred for use. One word of caution, though, is that
the stems are rich in tannin so you don't want to be steeping the whole
At Brambleberry Farm, we make/sell Sumac Syrup. We sell alot of it. It
has a citrus-like flavor. Customers use it as an ice cream topper, on
pancakes, as a glaze on chicken or duck, etc. I prefer it on my corn bread.
