juniper berries.

I found dried juniper berries at a specialty food store and decided it would be my souvenir.

They are a little tart and a little peppery, and supposedly go great with game meat and may aid in digestion.

Since I’m a big tea drinker, I decided to make a simple syrup to use in lieu of honey.

A quick recipe:

  • Add crushed juniper berries to a one to one ratio of sugar and water.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for four hours.
  • Strain out the juniper berries.
  • Enjoy!

Mmm, I want to try it on pancakes and drizzle it in some Greek yogurt.

I still have a lot of juniper berries left. Maybe I’ll try my hand at making a juniper berry meat dish next. Have you cooked with juniper berries before? What did you make? Share below.

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.
