16 Recipes That Make the Most of Juniper Berries
We love winter coziness, and no one does it better than the people of Denmark, whose concept of coziness, AKA hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), is sweeping your Pinterest and Instagram feeds. They know a lot about good living up north, and in honor of hygge, we’ve decided to highlight another Nordic specialty: juniper. The citrusy, piney berry that’s used to flavor gin is the real key to feeling warmed from the inside out, and these 16 recipes showcase it in a way you’ll find irresistible.
Juniper Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Panna CottaIf you like rich desserts, this one’s for you. Bittersweet dark chocolate and woodsy juniper are balanced by a sprinkle of sea salt and a hint of sweetness, and you’ll find yourself dreaming about the creamy texture. (via Local Milk)
Juniper and Smoke MarshmallowsTake a minute to erase those powdery, often stale supermarket marshmallows from your mind. After one bite of these smokey, piney, gloriously soft and sticky homemade marshmallows, there’s no going back. (via Local Milk)
12. Juniper and Honey Pots De Creme: In simple desserts, honey is sometimes better than sugar. Here, it adds a depth of flavor that can stand up to resinous juniper berry, for a creamy, rich dessert that will leave your taste buds tingling. (via Pass the Cocoa)
