St. Louis Herb Society
 
   
 
  Another supremely aromatic herb, conjuring images of evergreens, the color of winter - at least in the Midwest. A piney scent, reminiscent of Rosemary, yet different, and of far more limited use. Especially good and traditionally used with wild game - Juniper supplies the berries for flavoring gin, in particular. In fact the name is derived from a similar beverage, Dutch Jenever or Genever. Juniper is rich in legend - see the featured herb page for more.  
 
 
   
 
  Remember the old commercial featuring Euell Gibbons - we can’t quite remember the product, but the lead quote was: “ Ever eat a pine tree? “ - well this is about as close as you can get! (pine nuts notwithstanding). Juniper is the primary herbal flavor in this month’s recipe, and in the dash of gin that’s also in the recipe (of course teetotalers can omit that ). While the recipe calls for steak - chicken or even more traditionally, wild game could be substituted. Even turkey considering the season. The intense flavor of Juniper is used to offset the sometimes ‘gamy’ flavor of wild meat. The recipe is from our award winning cookbook!
