Extra large, plump juniper. 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. Juniper is also used to flavor gin and
also for sauerkraut. In herbal medicine, juniper berries are most often used as
a diuretic. Eastern European juniper has more of a straight piney-juniper
flavor than Italian juniper.
