Barberries have a sweet flavour with pleasant, tart notes that are often compared to cranberries. The fruit grows on the berberis tree and is used in Persian and Ottoman cooking within rice dishes due to their jewel-like appearance. The fruit is also used to make sweet, tart jams.
Barberry partners perfectly with saffron, where it can be stuffed into quail or used alongside other spices to make Persian jewelled rice. Their pleasant tartness make Barberries the perfect accompaniment to stews and desserts.
