Barberries have featured in traditional naturopathic remedies across Europe for centuries. But these tart, slightly lemony and very juicy red gems are super-handy for everyday cooking too. Use them to add flair and flavour to couscous, rice, barley and lentil dishes. Pop them into salads, cooked vegetable dishes and preserves – and apply them to many traditional Middle Eastern recipes.
Barberries come from evergreen shrubs. They are great to help to balance the Ph in your blood.
