Juniper Berries are one of those special spices that you don't need a lot of. They should be ground or crushed right before using. You don't want to lose any of the essential oil flavor. Juniper Berries have a piney, citrus, antiseptic taste. Used in game dishes such as venison and duck. It is also used in sauerkraut and along with salt, it helps to cure fish. I use Juniper Berries in brines for chicken and turkey, when I am cooking salmon or slow roasting a pork shoulder. They add a wonderful flavor to a port wine sauce that I pour over duck breasts.
