Juniper is a woody shrub in the conifer or cypress family that is native to North America, Europe and Asia. Although the fruit of this plant are commonly called berries, they are actually small cones that take nearly two years to mature and change color from green to purplish-black.

Organic Juniper berries are used as a spice and are particularly popular in Scandinavian cuisine, where they are used to flavor wild game.

juniper berries

Juniper berry refers to the cone of a slow-growing evergreen shrub in the cypress family. Although the wood is not suited for furniture making due to the small size of the tree, it is used to make traditional Scandinavian cheese and butter containers. It is also used to make small utensils and decorative pieces.

The so-called berries are not eaten raw because they are too bitter. Their strong flavor is tempered, however, when dried. The slightly crushed berries are used typically used to flavor game meats, bread stuffing and other savory foods. Juniper berry is also used to flavor gin.
