Notes:

My guess is that this is a winged sumac, which shouldn’t be poisonous, but I’d swear that I broke out with very itchy blisters after my last contact with this bush while mowing.

    If you have allergies, you aren’t going to be wanting to consume beverages made from, or food spiced with the berries…

    Watched them prepare quail with a sumac seasoning on one of those cooking shows last night… quickly went to the computer to do a bit of research…
