Sumac, the spice and the shrub

splatgirl | May 6, 2013 12:46 PM

What part of the sumac plant is the spice and how is it prepared/dried? I assume it's the red "flower" spikes, but is the middle eastern/eastern european/greek sumac spice from the same variety of plant that grows into huge, wild shrubs in the upper midwest?
