What is "sumac" and what do you do with it?

elmomonster | Jun 22, 2005 06:46 PM

I went and got a takeout meal at Wholesome Choice in Irvine yesterday. It came with a two long lobes of ground chicken grilled over fire served on top of yellow and white basmati rice. There was also a grilled tomato in there along for the ride.

But then I was also handed a packet which had some sort of flatbread and a plastic rip-away packet of "SUMAC". I am assuming it's a kind of spice, but seeing as how I didn't see the packet until after I finished my meal, I didn't touch it.

I regret throwing it away now.

So I wonder, what was I supposed to do with it? And what is it really?
