Juniper berries have always been in great demand at the peak of the game season, for their primary purpose is to flavor wild game. They have a tart flavor which cuts back some of the gaminess of venison. In European countries, juniper berries are a necessity for marinades for wild boar, venison, and pork dishes; and are often used in stuffing for all types of fowl. Their flavor was also popular with the American Indians in the Pacific Northwest, who crushed the berries and cooked them with wild buffalo. They may be thrown in a stew and, of course, into sauerbraten or sauerkraut. While you wait for your stew to finish simmering, make sure to have a gin and tonic topped with a few juniper berries. Ingredients: Juniper berries.

The juniper berries were so far from fresh that it would take the light from fresh a thousand years to reach them. They were hard as gravel and couldn’t be crushed with a mortar and pestle. Stop sending me emails … I will not order from you again.
This is by far the best paprika I've found...sweet smoky and tastes like the best BBQ chip ever...I highly recommend!
I always have these on hand for making carnitas. I use these along with bay leaves and thyme. Amazing flavors with pork butt!
Great for roasted game birds
