Source for Juniper berries

  • s

I bought some of the most delicious sauerkraut I ever had at a take-out counter in the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. It had Juniper berries in it, but I haven't been able to find a mail-order or web source. Anybody use these in cooking anything else? Where can I buy them?

  1. I often put juniper berries in my sauerkraut. Penzey's Spice carries them. URL below. Good, fresh herbs and spices. My favorite is the Vietnamese cinnamon.

        My mother puts juniper berries & white wine in hers. I usually go for the Boar's Head bags of it, very crunchy and very good.

    2. If you are in Philly, theres a store in the terminal market that sells bulk spices and teas, and likely has juniper berries. Also, its one of the standards in the McCormick spice jar array in the supermarket.
