Juniper berries aren't actually berries at all, but rather the female seed cone of different types of junipers that has an appearance similar to a berry. Juniper berries have been used throughout most of human history. They have been discovered in Egyptian tombs and praised in the texts of Ancient Greece. These berries possess an amazingly rich pine flavor that is similar to rosemary. Use to marinade meat or roast with root vegetables.
To create a marinade, crush juniper berries and combine with oil, balsamic vinegar and salt.
Juniper berries might be an antioxidant and may aid in digestion.
