Dry the Drupes

Drying the Staghorn Sumac Drupes

Freshly harvested, ripe Staghorn Sumac drupes make a wonderful, ascorbic acid rich tea (in cold water) when ripe and the drupes can be dried so the tea can be made in the off-season the rest of the year.  To dry my sumac, I have strung the drupes on cordage and hung them in the sun on my drying rack.
