Juniper Berries

Juniper is famous for stimulating insulin release and generally supporting the pancreas, and is a highly valued by many diabetics across the UK and Europe. But its possible therapeutic (and culinary) virtues are much broader than that. Juniper berries have long been cherished as a natural digestive aid, antiseptic, gum and gout soother, and even a reliever of water tension. Food-wise, they most commonly star in meat and game recipes, but offer many more flavourful opportunities…

Using juniper berries in food

As a distinctive pine-like, spicy and aromatic flavour, juniper berries will give you flavour options that no other ingredient can. Most of us know that they are an essential ingredient in gin making, but let us give you some broader (and more healthy) culinary uses for juniper berries…

  • Try mixing your juniper berries with garlic and sea salt to really enliven cabbage and other tasty green vegetables. All your guests will be asking how you managed to create such a special flavour!
  • Like many berries, juniper is fantastic for making chutneys, sauces and marinades. Throw them in to your homemade recipes for a totally new dimension of taste.
  • Stuffing is something that most of us love (whether we eat meat or not). To take yours to the next level, add a sprinkling of our top quality juniper berries to any stuffing mixes – whether homemade or shop-bought!
  • Stews, casseroles and lots of juicy rustic dishes will benefit from a smattering of juniper berries. So give it a whirl.
  • Meat eaters take note. Juniper berries are a fitting match for many different meat dishes, including beef, pork, duck, rabbit and venison. Of course, for the best flavour and healthiness, always consume organic and high-welfare meat wherever possible – and do so in wise moderation!
