A juniper berry is the female seed cone produced by the various species of junipers. It is not a true berry but a cone with unusually fleshy and merged scales, which give it a berry-like appearance

 

Origin: Greece

 

Flavor/Aroma: "Green-fresh" and citrus notes

 

Use: Juniper berries are used in northern European and particularly Scandinavian cuisine to "impart a sharp, clear flavor" to meat dishes, especially wild birds(including thrush, blackbird, and woodcock) and game meats (including boar and venison). 

They also season pork, cabbage, and sauerkraut dishes
