Sorich Organics Juniper Berry Seeds

The word “Berry” makes everything seem sweet and merry. However, please don’t pop one of these berries into your mouth just on hearing the word “berry”, as your tastebuds might be in for a surprise!!! Juniper Berries aren’t really berries. These berries are not  true berries but a cone with unusually fleshy and merged scales, which give it a berry-like appearance. They are bitter to taste and are best used in marinades and in meat dishes. Juniper berries traditionally have been used to “detoxify” the body and promote healthy digestion and skin health.

More about the Berries:

Juniper berries are the key flavoring in gin, which was originally known as jenever (“juniper”) and was developed in the Netherlands. Juniper berries were used in cooking and for medicinal purposes in ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome, and have been found in India and other Asian cultures as well.

Juniper has a piney taste with citrus overtones (sometimes compared to rosemary) and is a common ingredient in German food. Juniper berries are a pungent spice that is popular in European cuisine and also gives gin its distinguishing flavor.

Juniper berries are tiny cones of the juniper bush (a relative of the popular landscaping shrub). Most juniper berries used in recipes come from the species Juniperus communis, a plant that grows in northern climates. Not all juniper berries are edible, some berries are toxic.

You can purchase the product via Amazon.in or head to the webpage of SorichOrganics and get in touch with the team.

Benefits of Juniper Berries:

  • It is a natural antiseptic with anti fungal and antibacterial properties.
  • It may help improve digestion.
  • It helps improve skin conditions like eczema,vitiligo and rashes.
  • can be included as part of a diabetic diet plan

Precautions while using Juniper Berries:

  • Pregnant women should never consume juniper berries in whole or essential oil form as it may potentially cause damage to the unborn child or force uterine contractions.
  • Juniper is also not recommended for those with poor kidney function.
  • It is possible to develop an allergic reaction to juniper berries, which could manifest with skin issues (like a rash) or breathing issues. If you experience any of those conditions after using juniper berries, discontinue use and consult your doctor immediately.
  • Juniper berries may also interact negatively with certain medications, so if you are on any form of medication, you should first consult with your doctor before using juniper berries or juniper berry essential oil.

How to Use Juniper Berries:

If you want a strong juniper aroma and flavor to your dish, crushing fresh berries before adding them to a sauce or marinade is the way to go.

 For a more subtle flavor, you can toast the berries, but be careful not to burn them or they’ll taste bitter.

To crush the berries, put a tablespoon or so in a zippered bag and lightly smash them with a meat mallet, hammer or wine bottle. Once they’re flattened, dump them on a cutting board and chop them finely with a chef’s knife before adding to your dish or marinade.

Whole or crushed, juniper berries add a lot of flavor. But you’ll want to be careful when first trying them in a recipe to find the smallest amount to get the most flavor. Too much juniper berry can overpower all the other flavors. As a flavor enhancer , they work best in savory dishes. Try them in a stew or add to your chicken before roasting. The berries pair really well with game, such as venison or duck.

What to cook with Juniper Berries:

Juniper is commonly used with lamb (or mutton) and is particularly good with venison, wild boar, and even domestic pork. You could even add them to a pot of chili, to give a rustic flavor that complements ground smoked chile peppers. Juniper is also a good flavoring to use with roast duck.

To bring out juniper berries’ slight citrus flavor, most recipes call for another fruit such as apples or prunes to be added. You can rub crushed juniper berries into a meat of your choosing before roasting it. Add a little ginger or garlic to the rub for a savory flavor. Or you can stew the berries before marinating or basting the meat with them.

Hope this post was an interesting and informative read!

Product Review: Quinoa Seeds From Sorich Organics

Healthy food has become the need of the day. Quinoa is one such seed which is widely used in breakfast bowls, of which, amazing pictures are posted on instagram, which makes you want to try it out as well. So here I am with a packet of quinoa in my hand, all set to create a breakfast bowl with an instagram picture to kill for!!!! 😀  The Indian version would make Quinoa look like Upma! The breakfast bowls look amazing though:

About the Plant:

I must say, as I searched for the Quinoa Plant , the photographs of the plant were stunning. The plant itself is so colourful and doesn’t appear to be a superfood plant!! As I first saw the pictures, I assumed it to be a flowering plant that could be used for floral decorations.  Have a look at these pictures:

Quinoa, (Chenopodium quinoa), plant species grown for its tiny edible seeds. As a member of the Amaranthaceae family, quinoa is not a true cereal. Its seeds are high in protein and fibre, and its young leaves are also nutritious and can be eaten as a vegetable similar to spinach (to which it is related). The plant is native to the Andean region of South America, where it has been a staple crop for millennia. Touted for its health benefits, quinoa is now grown in a number of countries around the world, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Sweden, and India, but most of it is still grown in Peru and Bolivia.

After harvest, the seeds are processed to remove the bitter-tasting outer seed coat. Versatile for many dishes, cooked quinoa supplies nutrient content similar to wheat and rice, such as moderate amounts of protein, dietary fiber, and minerals. Quinoa is gluten-free.

Quinoa is a little expensive and that might refrain you from making a purchase. But yes, you could give it a try and then decide if you would want to continue with the product. Or maybe you could purchase this once in two months if you like it 🙂

Buy the seeds from Amazon.in or visit the brand webpage www.sorichorganics.com to get in touch with the team. To know more about the brand, Click Here.

Types of Seeds: Oil-type sunflower seeds are characterized by small size, have more oil content, and feature black hulls. However, both types of seeds can be used for either purpose.

In the stores, one may choose whole-seeds, hulled, roasted, salted, etc., for use. Avoid thin, shriveled seeds or old stocks, as they tend to be out of flavor.

Yogabars: Eat Better, Feel Better, Be Better

I guess we all have the habit of binging on snacks during the day (snacks, by the way, is a reference to chips, biscuits and all food items termed oily and unhealthy yet delicious!). There are a lot of protein bars/snack bars/cereal bars in the market, the aim of these products being to help us eat healthy and give up on binge eating. However its not as easy as it sounds right? I never reach out to these products in the supermarket. Their packaging never makes me fall in love with them and crave to try them out. The very thought of digging my teeth into a cereal bar makes me go and reach out for a bar of chocolate and i end up purchasing all the food that i am not supposed to snack on. I came across a new product which made me want to give it a try: Yogabars was kind enough to send me few of their delicious yet healthy snack bars and I was blown away by the quality, quantity, pricing and packaging of the product. They have two variants: Snack bars and Protein Bars ; so you could make the right choice !

IMG_0687

What The Company Claims:

Yogabars contain whole grains, cereals, nuts,dried fruits and seeds blended with the sweetness of honey, natural spices and extracts to give you delicious flavours.

Snack bars and super food bare are made with 100% natural ingredients, with no artificial sweetners or other ingredients. They are the perfect nutritious treat for kids! You can divide one Yogabar into 2-3 bars for a readymade delicious snack for the children. The Yogabar is not as sweet as “candy bars,” so children can enjoy themselves without becoming “sugared out.”

Because Gym Bars (High protein) are formulated with adult protein needs in mind, children should not eat a whole bar until their nutritional needs more closely match those of an adult (around ages 9-13). Children ages 4-9 could have half on occasion and as with all food choices, parents should use their best judgment.

You should consult your dietician / doctor if you are diabetic and want to include Yogabars as part of your diet.

Overall, these snack bars are good to carry around in your handbag /gymbag to satiate those hunger pangs and avoid binging on chips !!! It is a must try snack bar if you are health conscious or aim to be or if you just love trying out such stuff too!! The protein bars are good if you are into fitness /sport, etc., which would definitely help ! And yes, the packaging is cool too!!! My personal favourite snack bars are Cardamom and coconut, Vanilla and almond, Chocolate Chunk and Nut & Seed. I haven’t tried the protein bars yet. I am tempted to try them out though!! I only wish the single packs were available in the supermarket!!!

Working for long hours also can lead to bad breath, which we usually tend to forget about. And this tea does the needful by taking care of the bad breath. So when you have this tea around you, you can worry less about bad breath and focus more on your work.

Hmm…. it also aids weight loss!!!  Sounds interesting and worth a try, doesn’t it?

This tea is great for home and office and it can be served either as iced tea or as a hot beverage, depending on personal choices.

You can get around 50 cups of tea from this pack as the tea can be infused three times!! Worth every penny splurged on this pack!
