Description & Use: Best known for their application in flavouring gin, these dark-blue, almost black, soft, aromatic berries are used in many traditional European recipes. Add a few juniper berries to stews and casseroles, particularly those made with game. Poultry stuffings are given a delicious lift when about 3 or 4 juniper berries are slightly crushed and added to the stuffing, with herbs like Herbs de Provence, Italian Herbs or Mixed Herbs.
Caution: This pack may contain some dried needles from the juniper tree, so in the unlikely event that you see any, please remove before adding to cooking.
