Cabbage with Juniper Berries

No ratings yet
You can use any type of cabbage that happens to be in season for this delicious recipe, juniper berries are wrinkled and black and, when crushed, release their delightful aroma. The flavour is reminiscent of gin, since juniper is a basic ingredient of the spirit. As a faint background hint, married with garlic, it adds a very special touch to cabbage.

  • 1 medium onion skinned and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove skinned and crushed
  • 6 juniper berries crushed

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion, garlic and juniper berries and lightly cook for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft.
