Wild Sarsparilla (Aralia Nudicaulis)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aralia_nudicaulis

Native:  Wild sarsaparilla is a 1-2 foot tall shrub common to the forest understories of southern New England. It produces tiny white flowers in spherical clusters beneath the compound leaves, which ripen into blue-black berries in mid-summer. The rhizome of wild sarsaparilla has a sweet, aromatic taste, and sometimes has substituted for sassafras in the making of home-made root beer
