The juniper berry is one of the few flavorings to come from a conifer tree. Offering a hint of resin with a slight tang of citrus, it features in the traditional cuisines of Scandinavia and many other regions of Europe. Horticultural Interpreter Charles Day explains the origin of this evocative spice while a chef from Great Performances inspires with some freshly prepared recipes.

Free with admission to the grounds.
