No but in the mango family is stag horn sumac
soak  the berries they are hard, and not berry like ,
 but they have hairs on them that is what you are after ,
 but if it rains they wash off...

vinify  a few gallons
had a sweetness even though it was dry wine
wasn't into that type of sweetness (in that at least), but was not the worst (nice sour taste)
Anise wine has a sweetness left over --- I liked it in that wine (I fermented dry)
 Anise had a bad smell though like vomit sort of.-- (note I follow good practices vinifying)


Think I may try mango I should of when Jewel had the fruit 19 cents in Chicago
I did can some though (In a getto way just in jars/liquid held up good, and didn't oxidize )


Stag Horn Sumac
I also make Sumac lemonade soaking the berries My friends whole family liked it
(not white berries that is poison sumac -- also -- if people have alergic reaction to Mango maybe not drink it.

The old rub some on skin under arm to see if people have a reaction
I do not go that far, but maybe just taste a small bit first
Of coarse do not burn poison IVY I think the same applies for sumac , and mango, but just guessing same family though.

Man those Sumacs sure do spread to saw a whole field covered in them
It is by the Homeless place nice to sit, and have a beer on bike trail
Or just sit for the Guitar, and tea meet some cool people there too (homeless played Guitar good for them Had a good vibe)
 I should go plant a bunch of Oak start a forest to overcome the NATIVE sumac

I do not eat sumac there though to close to train tracks in between them could be pollution a few black berries never hurt though.

Nothing to do with Texas , but be warned planting sumac (spread by runners)
Guess a mango latte should be good
Coffee binds to the milk proteins so sweetness may be good with  it (I like it, but)
I would like something to par with the bitterness of coffee --- (Like a bitter flavor)
 I do not mess much with coffee so not very knowledgeable on it
I like it though -- just drink a lot of black tea instead

Long ago My friends would throw parties , and play music
I would drink at all night at 5 Am people would go home mostly
would walk miles, and miles for a (2) hours b/c I like to, and  go get a 64 Ounce cup of cappuccino
(yes that 64 OZ CUP in store GAS Station is for POP soda or cold drink what ever you call it)
but do not steal  except I guess that was filling with cappuccino was so
and stay awake listen to records , and drink more
So never a conisuerrier of coffee would like to be just never learned the best brands
(like(warm) stout beer the  coffee notes though)
Even got over  a $100 bucks of coffee free expensive stuff hate to say it went to waste except what I gave away.

I want to start a forest!! With the finest fruit trees one can find. Really enriching experience. Its amazing that poisin ivy is related to mangos. Just like cashews are related to banana! wowza.

You know if you plant trees the spirit will be there for generations to come :)
