don't limit it to the modern use in puddings, it's a very common olde English spice used a lot in Tudor dishes.... which is what taste I'm after, something completely different to tinned tomatoes on toast for new years day;)
I'm looking at this one click here$2$0$80$865 But I'm not sure about the Juniper berries, I've never seen them in the shops and no idea about the flavour, other than gin. Is there something I can replace them with?
Roast the partridges with a clove of garlic and some butter, and serve them with parsnip chips (easy to make), a crisp green salad, and put a couple of slices of hot, poached pear with each serving. We poach the pears in red wine with a little cinnamon and a clove.
The dish will look very good, and taste very good. If you have any good-quality vanilla ice cream serve that for dessert with a little cognac poured onto it just before serving - or. if you prefer you can add Kahlua or Baileys to the ice cream. Any of those makes a perfect end to a partridge meal.
