I need these for my bacon cure that I'd like to start this weekend. any ideas?
I never thought I'd need to shop for juniper berries, I usually just buy the gin.

Anyone know anything else to do with Juniper berries aside from curing bacon? I'm sure they aren't NEEDED, but if Ruhlman uses them, I'm gonna use them too.
I'm going to visit some local joints and see what they have to say.

I have used them before in the brine for a turkey on the smoker. Bought them years ago at a supermarket. Spice Island brand I believe. Check a few grocery stores and maybe a gormet food store if there is one in your area. I've seen them in a few recipies from time to time...none I can think of right now.

I'm gonna go hit the smaller food shops, and a different grocery chain before I order online.

This place is around the corner from me, http://www.herbstorenm.com - call and if they carry I'd be happy to pick up and ship if they wont.
