If you are collecting fresh sumac berries, break off the stems at the joint, just below the seed clusters. Before brewing, separate the fruits from the clusters. Or, start with dried sumac berries. Fresh berries will produce the best flavor. This recipe comes from discussions with a military man who made this drink during his travels and the website www.ediblewild.com/sumac.html.
