Unable to find sumac, I found some websites that recommend substituting lemon zest. This is what I decided on after loking at many recipes.

i love this! I used it on fish and also to make sauce. I would like to use it on fresh tomatoes next time. I also might fill it in jars and give it away together with a recipe. Thank you for sharing. Made for Ramadan Tag Game 2010
