Sumac Pie

I made the pie for the church carry in. It was a hit! I wouldn't tell anyone what it was until they tasted it. I eavesdropped on comments. I heard "What are those berries?" (I used some of the berries for garnish.) "This tastes like pink lemonade." "It reminds me of a sweet tart."

After telling people what it was I got a lot of raised eyebrows. I explained that it is different than poison sumac. I took a couple ladies out to the parking lot where there is some staghorn sumac growing. I still got some of the "it is good, but you are weird" looks, but hey I never said I was trying to be normal! :)

  1. I made sumac tea for the first time and would love to get your recipe for sumac pie. I loved the tea, my husband thought I was trying to poison him haha. When I explained about Staghorn Sumac he tried it but I'd made it strong so he wasn't too keen. Please send your recipe to
    I'm very eager to try it while the staghorn are in full bloom. : )
