History and Origins of Junipers

C juniper also called genever berries (Juniperus Communis) is a conifer from the cypress family. It occurs naturally in the Benelux. The name Juniperus is derived from a Celtic word meaning prickly. Juniperus is a thorny bush. Communis means 'common' in Latin.

The juniper played a role in prehistory. The pollen of the berries has been found in soil layers, around the year 13,500 - 12,100 BC. The berries and seeds have been found in cesspools, indicating the use of the berries as a spice.


The juniper has a spicy, bittersweet taste. Because the taste of juniper berries develops slowly, they must be cooked for a long time. These juniper berries are ground into powder, which reduces the time it takes for the flavour to be released. The powder is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

The powder of this berry-shaped cone fruit can be used in many ways. For instance, the powder can provide flavouring to different drinks. Besides being used in drinks, the flavour of juniper berries is excellent in winter dishes! Traditionally, they are used to season sauerkraut and game, in marinades and in sauces and ragout.

Use ground juniper also when preparing fish and poultry. Especially delicious on the grill or barbecue! In addition to sauerkraut, juniper berries taste great with almost all other types of cabbage. Juniper berries go well with other spices such as parsley and bay leaf.
