Juniper Berries (Juniperus communis) have diuretic, stomachic, and carminative properties which make them useful in relieving stomach problems such as indigestion and flatulence. “The berries are used for the production of the volatile oil which is given in indigestion, flatulance and diseases of the kidneya and bladder” (A Modern Herbal – Mrs. M. Grieve F.R.H.S.).

Junipers are coniferous plants in the genus Juniperus, of the cypress family Cupressaceae. Depending on taxonomic viewpoint, between 50 and 67 species of junipers are widely distributed throughout the Northern Hemisphere.

They have a piney, bitter taste & aroma, they are an ideal ingredient to add to rich gamey dishes containing venison, duck and pheasant. The berries can also be used to make sweet syrups to poach fruit in or to use as a base for a fruit salad. To get the best results, lightly crush juniper berries before adding to a dish to help release their flavour.
