Jacqueline's Cabbage With Juniper Berries

From Northeast Georgia Locally Grown

I buy Juniper berries online, but this year I’ll try some I know to be growing on a tree in Clarkesville. When ripe, they are dark purple and about the size of small pearls.I think it’s best to pick them after the first frost.You can dry them and keep them in a glass jar. They last quite a while.
