  • Juniper berries are the blue-black fruits of an evergreen shrub that grows throughout the northern hemisphere.
  • The further south the juniper grows, the more pungent the berries.
  • Juniper smells of pine and camphor with hints of citrus.
  • It leaves a tingling sensation on the tongue.
  • Juniper berries are gathered along Croatia's Dalmatian coast, where they add their fragrance to that of wild rosemary, lavender, and thyme.
  • Use them with their companion herbs to create interesting combinations of macarons or buttercream fillings, or as an infused simple syrup.
  • Use them lightly crushed, alone or with their companion herbs, in stuffings and marinades for pork, venison, quail, Cornish game hen, and other fowl or game.
  • Crush them with salt and garlic for use in pâtés.
  • Our favorite combination?  Juniper, sea salt, dark chocolate pot de creme!
