Default Re: What's your 2018 Garden Like?

I found a recipe for Sumac Lemonade:
Makes 1 quart
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
  • 1/3 cup dried sumac berries or 1 cup fresh sumac berries
  • 1 quart boiling filtered water
  • 1/4 cup raw honey, or to taste
  1. Add the sumac berries to the boiling water. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, then turn off and remove from heat. Allow to steep for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Strain the liquid using a double thickness of cheesecloth to remove tiny hairs. Taste, dilute as desired, then sweeten with honey to taste. Chill, serve over ice, and refrigerate unused portions.

You are God, Goddess. All that lives, breathes, loves, sings in the unending harmony of being is divine.
