Uses for zereshk (dried barberries)?

Bought a bag of zereshk (dried barberries) to make Ottolenghi's aubergine kuku.

Have since used some to make zereshk polo (aka polow), Persian saffron chicken with barberry rice.

Still have 95% of the bag left. While I'll surely be cooking the kuku and the polo again, I was wondering if anyone had other ideas for using these tart dried fruits.

      To think I've seen them growing in people's yards for years and never knew they were edible!
