Wild fruits and berries - juniper berries (fructus juniperi) - introduction

        WILD FRUITS AND BERRIES - JUNIPER BERRIES (FRUCTUS JUNIPERI) - INTRODUCTION
People who like sauerkraut will be familiar with juniper berries because they are often added for flavouring. But then what do we do? We pick them out and leave them on the side of the plate. Occasionally they are mentioned in a cookery book as a spice, and it may also be remembered by some that grandfather often used to chew them first thing in the morning. Besides that, juniper berries have been more or less forgotten. Old herbals say that the eagle lives to an old age because it feeds on juniper berries. They contain a delicate essential oil and much sugar, yet they do not taste sweet because their bitter constituents override the sweet ones.
Sufferers from gout and rheumatism find that juniper berries are an excellent remedy because they help to increase the elimination of uric acid by way of the urine.
