Description

Organic Juniper Berries  – Gin springs to mind!

These Organic Juniper Berries are a great ingredient if you like experimenting with flavours.  These dark berries come from the juniper tree and they have a tart, resinous flavour which creates rich, warming meals.

Although juniper berries are a popular addition to meat based recipes we have found they work so well with veggies.  They are a great addition to sauerkraut and go perfectly with slow roasted tagines and stews.  Juniper berries also work well in sweet recipes such as rich fruit cake and stewed apple.

If you like the odd gin and tonic then put a generous handful of juniper berries in with your bottle of gin and leave it for a week or more before adding it to your favourite mixer!  If you prefer a more healing brew then steep the berries into a warming herbal tea.

Family Tip

  1. Juniper berries can be crushed gently between your fingers before being added to your recipe.  This will bring out their flavour.
  2. To use as a tea steep 1 teaspoon of crushed berry (2-3g) in 150ml of boiling water for 10 minutes.
  3. If you like making veggie or vegan versions of popular recipes then ditch the steak and make a red wine and junipers sauce as a topping for roasted tofu or seitan.
