Juniper (Juniperus Communis)

An evergreen tree, belonging to the cupressaceae family, with aromatic purple-black berries.

They are so rich in natural sugars that they're used in the fermentation of gin, which partly retains the flavour of juniper oils

They are also used, in their dry-form, to bring out depth of flavour in game casseroles and marinades. They should always be crushed before use, to bring out their full flavour.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
