Barberries enjoy world recognition for their addictively tart, citrusy flavour and attractive reddish colour. They’re one of the most cherished edible berries in Iran, where they’re called zereshk, and are a vital ingredient in the lavish Persian cuisine.
Barberries are as versatile as any other berries. Expect to find barberries in everything from candies and sodas to jams and baking treats. Often sold dried, these ruby-hued one-biters are one of the essential ingredients in the famous rice-based dish Pilaf, but you’ll be surprised to see how easy it is to add them to your cooking.
