Beware the Bubonic Plague! Not so much now, but in the Middle Ages, the Romans burned these berries to try to cleanse the air of the plague.
Towards the 17th Century, somebody gave up on the homemade Lysol and used the sweet, pine, clean taste of Juniper Berries and added them to Gin. Nowadays, if they are crushed in a mortar with garlic and salt, they make an excellent rub for lamb, pork, and a variety of other meats!
