Ground Sumac Berries are used to enhance the flavor of your recipes, similar to how salt does. Because of that, sumac spice is great in homemade marinades & dressings, as well for rubbing on meats. Dried sumac seasoning has a bit of a tart sumac taste, and pairs well with many other herbs and spices.
