We selected Marina’s EVOO infused with juniper berries for two reasons. The taste, which is amazing, and the health benefits. Known as a powerful detoxifier and immune system booster, juniper berry plants, originally from Bulgaria, have a long history of naturally helping prevent both short and long-term illnesses. It has been used for hundreds of years in natural remedies for sore throats and respiratory infections. She adds the natural essential oil obtained from juniper berries to the fresh EVOO as it is being produced, creating a perfect fusion of the two products. It can be used on a variety of dishes. Our favorite is adding it to stews and with wild game like venison. It is wonderful on potato salad and on soups, especially soups made with beans and/or lentils.
