Blue juniper is the
edible round berry of an evergreen shrub with a distinct, aromatic odor.
Traditionally used in northern/central European and Scandinavian cuisine to
give a sharp, clear flavor to meats; used to flavor gin and also for
sauerkraut. In herbal medicine, juniper berries are most often used as a
diuretic. Italian juniper berries are a smaller, higher grade berry carried
primarily for distillers, and have a more complex, fruity flavor than juniper
berries from Eastern Europe (Product ID 105).
