Price is for 8 oz fresh berries still attached to drupes/twigs (removing berries from twigs when fresh can remove a lot of the sticky good stuff too)
Dried staghorn sumac berry powder is not to be compared with fresh staghorn sumac berries. If you are looking for the best flavor and color, use FRESH! Even more labor intensive than grapefruit juice, staghorn sumac berries need to be harvested at the peak of ripeness. The berries have a delightful citrus flavor with a deep red color that won’t fade if used immediately after drying. They’re packed with vitamins and antioxidants, thanks to the rich soil they grow in. We take great care in sourcing our sumac.
Welcome! Toadstool Botanicals is here to bring you closer to plants & fungi through ethically foraged and cultivated goods. This business is owned and solely run by Rachel - an herbalist, farmer, and forager living in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. I pride myself on growing or foraging every single plant that goes into each product, and highlighting the immense power of plants local to the Washington DC, mid-Atlantic, and East Coast regions. Toadstool Botanicals focuses on seasonal offerings, and working with the plants around us. I especially value foraging invasive species and practicing reciprocity with the ecosystems and plant communities I harvest from through environmental stewardship and education. Feel free to drop me a message any time if you have questions about foraging in metropolitan areas, how I source different items, or anything else that comes to mind!
