Juniper Berries also known to most as Cedar

Postby k-villa » Mon Jan 11, 2016 6:41 pm

Simply the blue berries off of a Cedar tree. The native American Indians would rely heavily upon the juniper berry. Simple to find and pick, dry and store for when ready to use. I'd recommend crushing them before using them in a recipe, but only crush them when ready to use.

I made this Venison Juniper Berry Stew by Jamie Oliver and it WAS the best stew I've ever made. Be careful not to over do it on the juniper berries, or slow cook this stew without the berries. These berries are distinct in taste, similar to sage or what you would think cedar to taste like. Good hearty winter stew.
