Good to know
In total, there are over 70 different varieties of juniper, which grow either on shrubs or bushes. In principle, juniper occurs throughout the northern hemisphere and is used there especially in game dishes, to mitigate the intense game taste. In addition to its use as a spice, juniper is probably mainly known for its use in alcohol. It is still, by law, the main flavour in gin, but was first used by the Dutch to make Genever. But it is also popular in Scandinavian beers or schnapps. If you have ever had the feeling that you face a toilet rush after a few gin & tonics, you can also consider juniper as the culprit, as it has a diuretic effect.
game, lamb, beef, veal, pork, (fat) fish, Sauerkraut, marinades
Immediately before use, the whole berries should be crushed (e.g. with your fingers or through the flat side of a kitchen knife). Dose sparingly!
Full taste development
Crush before use and put in oily or alcoholic liquids.
Crushed juniper can also be used for dry marinades and all acid-stressed dishes. Juniper berries can also be ground and are then even more intense.

Liver & Kidney
The juniper berry stimulates the production of fluid in the kidneys, but at the same time kills bacteria, making it ideal for combating bladder or urinary tract diseases.
Consumption of juniper can have a soothing effect on the treatment of indigestion, but also of menstrual problems or haemorrhoids.
