Our organic juniper berries also known as gin berries, or horse savin have a delightful bitter sweet flavour with a peppery aftertaste. Despite what their name would suggest they are in fact not berries at all but instead come from a similar family to that of pine cones which provides their pine aroma and flavour. These berries can be used whole or can be crushed depending on the strength of flavour you desire in your dish (Crushing the berries will release more of their flavour) The flavour of juniper berries goes perfectly with strong gamey flavoured meats. Juniper berries also have many claimed health benefits.

Whole juniper berries are great for infusing dishes like soups and stews. If you decide to crush them in a mortar and pestle then they can be used in spice blends, in marinades or for rubs on meat and vegetables. The flavour of juniper berries pairs well with meats like pork, beef, venison and duck. You can even add these delightful juniper berries to your favourite Gin and Tonic to really enhance the flavour of your drink.
