Inscription.  Baskets and cradleboards were made from the stems of the three-leaf sumac, but its tart berries bring back Paiute people's best memories. Also called lemonadeberry, the small fruits were pounded into a pulp, then squeezed. Mixed with water, the result was a refreshing, strong-flavored, red lemonade-like drink.

Also see . . .  Rhus trilobata (Wikipedia). The Zuni people, Navajo, and Mono tribes use the stems with the bark removed to make baskets. The bark has been chewed or brewed into a drink for cold symptoms, the berries eaten for gastrointestinal complaints and toothache, and the leaves and roots boiled and eaten for many complaints. The leaves have also been smoked. The flexible branches were useful and sought after for twisting into basketry and rugs. The berries, although sour, are edible. They can be baked into bread or mixed into porridge or soup. (Submitted on May 6, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
