Juniper, or juniper berry, has been used since ancient times for its fragrance and air-freshening properties, as it has a distinct pine-like, resinous aroma. In cooking it is used much the same way, because juniper’s aroma has a remarkable ability to ‘freshen’ or lighten gamey meats such as venison or boar, earthy vegetables. grains, mushrooms, or fatty poultry, such as goose or duck. Juniper blends beautifully with other spices, adding a fragrant layer to blends to create a lighter, brighter variation on old favorites. In the hands of a daring and creative chef, juniper berries are a remarkable “secret ingredient”.
