Juniper berries actually aren’t berries at all. In addition to their slightly misleading name, juniper berries are also not a berry you would generally eat with breakfast, like blueberries (even though they’re similar in size). Instead, juniper berries are often used as a bitter spice. In fact, they give gin its distinctive flavour.
The spicy, aromatic, dark berries of the juniper tree can be used fresh or dried, crushed or whole, to flavour casseroles, marinades and stuffings and compliment pork, beef and duck. They can also be used in sweet dishes such as fruitcake.
Not to mention the many known health benefits found in the consumption of juniper berries - it is supposedly great for the skin, aiding digestion and improved sleep as well as being a natural antiseptic!
