Juniper berries

The words of Olivier Roellinger

Juniper berries are essential in the preparation of most game birds as well as for pigeon, guinea fowl, and duck. Here, we also like it in choucroute, and it may be used with all varieties of cabbage. I like to put a little in court bouillon, and in the water in which rice is cooking.

Botanical notes

Juniperus cummunis. Berries of a small conifer that grows on the Andalousian tundra. Their taste is at once peppery, resinous, and sweet. The British enjoy them in gin.
