Juniper Shine Recipe
Here's one (legal) way for home bartenders to get in on the Prohibition-era cocktail trend: make a drink with Stillhouse's Original Moonshine. This recipe pairs the new 80-proof clear whiskey with juniper maple syrup — a great aromatic combination for the holiday season.

Negroni. Glazed. Bacon. What else do we really need to tell you? Serve this alongside your meats and cheese at a cocktail party (or better yet, sprinkle on top of a Negroni pork shoulder taco). The recipe is courtesy of Tango & Stache, a pop-up culinary experience in San Francisco.

Pork Loin
Maybe we all have an inner Alsatian peasant longing for a dish just like this. As nights get colder and colder, the fruits of autumn — newly dried prunes, cabbage, and a harvested hog — are woven together with the wild piney flavor of juniper berries. Dried berries work very well, but ripe, juicy juniper berries lend a hint of sweetness that elevates this pork loin dish. Freeze any extra-ripe berries. They freeze beautifully. Adapted from "The Wild Table" by Connie Green and Sarah Scott.

Grilled Citrus Chicken
A marinade of roasted red bell peppers and citrus juices keeps the chicken moist as it cooks on the grill to perfection. Then, the remaining marinade is boiled down to make a delicious and flavorful sauce that gets a touch of butter at the end. Click here to see 15 Great Grilled Chicken Recipes.

Apples and pork is an obvious combination, but this recipe combines the two in an entirely new way, by braising a tender loin of pork in cider and fresh apples. It's then shredded and topped with a ginger-based salsa in a mini corn tortilla.

We prefer first to poach the shrimp, then to peel and devein them. That way they maintain their shape rather than curling and flaring into a "butterfly."

Editor's note: Use this brine to make Diane Morgan's Juniper-Brined Roast Turkey with Chanterelle Mushroom Gravy There are two reasons I am very specific about the salt called for in this recipe. First, I want to use a salt that is 100 percent sodium chloride, without any additives such as calcium silicate, an anti-caking agent, or potassium iodide, a nutritional supplement, both of which I find detract from the salt's flavor. Second, salts have widely varying densities; for example, 2/3 cup of Diamond Crystal salt weighs 3 ounces (85 grams) while 2/3 cup of Morton's kosher salt weighs 5.25 ounces (149 grams), and the same volume of Morton's table salt weighs 6.5 ounces (185 grams)—more than double the weight of the Diamond Crystal! As a result, a brine using table salt may be more than twice as salty as one using the same amount of Diamond Crystal. Now readily available in the spice section of most supermarkets and gourmet grocers, Diamond Crystal is packaged in a bright red box with black lettering. You can substitute any brand of salt, as long as it is pure sodium chloride and you use a weight of 3 ounces (irrespective of volume).

These long, crispy bread sticks are a lovely accompaniment to any soup, including Mario Batali's vegetable-and-farro version. Batali makes the bread sticks with leaves from the lightly bitter Mediterranean herb myrtle; crushed juniper berries are a good substitute. He also seasons the grissini with cayenne pepper, one of his favorite spices; he keeps it in a salt shaker so it's easy to dispense.
