Juniper Berries

 

 

 

 

 

xThese double cleaned berries add a taste of gin to wild game dishes.  They add an unusual and pleasant taste to many other dishes.  Eaten raw (a few at a time) they impart a clean, satisfying taste to the mouth.

Juniper berries are used in European and particularly Scandinavian cuisine to "impart a sharp, clear flavor to meat dishes, especially wild birds and game meats (including venison). They also season pork, cabbage, and sauerkraut dishes. Besides Norwegian and Swedish dishes, juniper berries are also sometimes used in German, Austrian, Czech, Polish and Hungarian cuisine, often with roasts (such as German sauerbraten). Northern Italian cuisine, especially that of the South Tyrol, also incorporates juniper berries.

Juniper,  is used to flavor gin, a liquor developed in the 17th century in the Netherlands.  It was first intended as a medication since juniper berries are a diuretic and were also thought to be an appetite stimulant and a remedy for rheumatism and arthritis. Western American Native Tribes are also reported to have used the juniper berry as an appetite suppressant in times of hunger and/or famine.  Some American outdoor entusiasts such as hunters, skiers, hikers, etc. chew juniper berries as they pursue their activities to ward off hunger.
