First, welcome to the SCA-Cooks list! You will find folks here with  
all levels of cooking experience.

When trying to find sources for unusual ingredients, you might try  
searching in the Florilegium and if there is a file there on a  
specific ingredient, like sumac, often one or more sources are given  

Or for spices check this file in the PLANTS, HERBS ABD SPICES section:
merch-spices-msg  (44K) 11/17/07    Spice merchants. Reviews and  

Or this one in the FOOD section:
food-sources-msg  (64K)  3/20/03    Modern sources for unusual  
medieval meats
                                        and other foods.

Please be aware that some American sumacs are poisonous, so be  
careful of this if you decide to harvest your own. You can find a lot  
more details on which ones are poisonous and which aren't in the  
sumac-msg file mentioned earlier.
