Staghorn sumac (Rhus typhina)
Is one of the wild edibles that can be foraged all winter long if you choose, although later in the season you lose some of the flavor and color and run a high risk of worms. The red velvet on the outside of the sumac berries is the tasty part. It has a wonderful sweet/tart citrus taste, that some liken to strawberry lemonade. Since it already has that flavor, making a sumace "lemonade" is the obvious thing to do. The seeds and stalks contain bitter alkaloids that are extracted by hot water, so it’s important to only use cold water when making a sumac infusion. It is an excellent source of vitamin C.
