Juniper is a coniferous tree native to Europe, Asia and North America.

The berries, which are actually modified cones, are used whole or ground as spice. Ground juniper berries are encapsulated as a dietary supplement, or used to produce infusions and tonics as beverages or for topical use on the skin. Juniper berry powder is also added to incense blends intended to be burned on smoldering charcoal.

Juniper, also known as Mountain Berry and Hackmatack, is an evergreen shrub found throughout the northern hemisphere. The wood of this small tree has been used for centuries to smoke meat and fish, while the round, aromatic berries, which are actually cones, have been used to flavor stuffing, gravies, pickled fish and game meats. Juniper berry is also a flavoring agent in gin.

Powdered juniper berry is also used in cooking, generally to lend background flavor to foods and beverages. Due to the resinous nature and strong flavor of the berries, exercise moderation when using this herb. One way to balance flavors nicely is to combine juniper berry powder with sea salt and/or ground black pepper to use as seasoning.
