Bella Italian Food Recommends:

Juniper Berries
Use these to flavor your marinades for meat and game dishes. Add with bay leaves and fennel seeds to stews for flavor. The berries are used throughout Europe to flavor pÔtÚs and meat dishes.

Juniper berries are found on the evergreen juniper shrub, which grows widely throughout the Northern Hemisphere. They have been used for medicinal purposes since the 16th century. One of the most famous uses for juniper berries is as a flavoring for gin. New berries appear on mature trees in the fall, and by spring they ripen to blue. Because the berries take between two to three years to fully ripen, the same plant can have unripe green and ripe blue berries at the same time.
