Juniper berries have been used as a culinary ingredient for centuries? In Scandinavia they were used to make a fragrant preserve that was eaten on bread. In parts of Britain and France, juniper berries were dried and used as a pepper substitute, in fact at one point juniper berries were even used to adulterate pepper berries by unscrupulous spice merchants, the berries have also been used to flavour beer and of course they are a standard ingredient in the making of gin which was once used as a medicine.
In herbal medicine, juniper has been used as a carminative and as a steam inhalant in the management of bronchitis. In traditional Swedish medicine, Juniperus communis has been used to treat wounds and inflammatory diseases. It also is used to control arthritis.
