Want SUMAC with that food??? I DO….I DO!!! Yesterday I actually flew on an airplane for 750 miles with some SUMAC in my purse Why would I do such a thing??? Well because it is SUMAC!!!
Sumac is one of my favorite spices because of its versatility. The tasty sumac I am describing is extracted from the berries of a flowering bush that grows wild in the Mediterranean region, especially southern Italy and parts of the Middle East. It is deep red or purplish in color and is commonly added to many Mediterranean dishes for its lemony flavor. Make sure you do not confuse it with poisonous sumac that grows in North America.
In terms of health benefits, it has both antimicrobial and antioxidant effects so it is great at helping to fight infections, heart disease and more. There is some evidence that it may even help to reduce fevers.
Have you tried SUMAC before???
