Sumac is a traditional ingredient in Middle Eastern and Persian cooking. It's a dried, crushed red berry that adds a mild citrusy flavor to anything it's sprinkled on. It goes great either alongside or in place of lemon in your cooking.

In the US, people pronounce it SOO-mack, but my Iranian friends tell me it's pronounced so-MAGH in Persian. 

Sumac gives off a gorgeous pinkish-red color along with its citrusy flavor, so it works great in both sweet and savory dishes. 

You can use Sumac to make:

(By the way, if you've heard of "poison sumac" and are worried this might be the same thing - it's not! That's a different plant all together. It's not clear why they have the same name, but my guess is it's just a coincidence of transliteration.)
