So, what is wachholder?

Wachholder, also known as juniper berries, is a versatile food ingredient that adds a unique flavor profile to dishes. These small, blue-black berries have a piney, resinous taste with a slightly sweet and bitter aftertaste. They are commonly used in Scandinavian cuisine for curing meats or flavoring sauces, and in German cuisine in the production of gin. In addition to their culinary benefits, wachholder berries also offer medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. With its distinct flavor and health benefits, wachholder is a must-have ingredient for any chef looking to add a touch of Scandinavia to their menu.
