TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE - Tentative Arrival 5-2-14     Juniper Berries are the ripe, dried cones from the Juniper Evergreen Shrub. Juniper Berries are not a true berry but a cone which gives it a berry-like appearance. These small bluish purple berries are about 1/4" wide with a powerful spicy flavor and a slight hint of pine or citrus. Best known as the flavoring for gin and other liqueurs, Juniper Berries have many uses other than their culinary applications. Egyptian doctors used the oil as a laxative, Native Americans used the berries to assist them in childbirth and to treat infections, and arthritis and wounds and British herbalists used Juniper as a remedy for congestive heart failure and as a diuretic. Juniper Berries impart a clean, fresh taste that enhances rich, fatty meats or wild game. Ground Juniper is easy to use in marinades, roast meats, sauerkraut, stuffing, sausages, stews and soups. Juniper Berries are thought to stimulate the appetite and therefore should be used sparingly. For an invigorating bath, tie some Juniper Berries in cheesecloth and toss into your water!

You don't need many of these fragrant berries to season your dish, just a few will flavor most recipes without overpowering the main ingredient or other seasonings. Juniper is what gives gin its unique flavor! To use the berries, slightly crush them or chop finely before using. Their flavor will dissipate quickly once exposed to air.
