Originally native to the northern climates, Juniper Berries are now harvested mainly in Italy, Bavaria and Germany. It takes 2 years for the berries to ripe. This popular spice has a blue-black color and bitter note. Juniper Berries contain resins, fats, sugar, and many bitter substances and some essential oils. These give them their unique, bitter taste with a slightly sweet and spicy note. Juniper Berries are one of the basic ingredients in alcoholic drinks such as Steinhäger and used as an essence for brandies such as jenever and gin as well as in sweets. Use this special flavor to refine meat dishes, sauerkraut, marinades, fish broth or ragouts. Create a unique taste experience and enjoy Rosemary or Marjoram with our Juniper Berries.
