    I did a search in the archives

    but was wondering if someone has a main dish to add these to that looks interesting

    thanks in advance as apparently they are very good in not only antioxidents, but also are not high in sugar

    not looking for a cold salad to top them with or include them in a trail mix

    HI Mickey,

    I've not seen them used in savoury dishes really but I see no reason why they shouldn't be used in them especially given their nutritional benefits. I have a rice pudding dish with goji in which is lovely but I have a feeling they'd be nice in savoury rice dish with chicken for example.

    I'll have a scout around and see if I can find any recipes for you!

    My sister was in South America where she drank the juice fresh everyday! Here it costs a heavy amount to buy a bottle of that stuff!

    I've seen it in health food stores in Canada. Maybe it is along with other juices. I try to eat local foods so I never picked it up to look at it or tasted it.

    FOund this so far, but yesterday found an absolutely beautiful dish re chicken and goji berries

    will try and find it

    What are goji berries? Other Names: Lycium barbarum, wolfberry, gou qi zi, Fructus lycii, simililar to Barberry.

    Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. They are in the nightshade (Solonaceae) family.

    Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins.
    1 quart milk
    1 pint heavy cream
    1 cup sugar, divided use
    1 cup goji berries
    2/3 cup Dutch process cocoa
    1/2 cup dark rum

    8 oz semisweet 84% cocoa chocolate, chopped*
    8 egg yolks
    2 teaspoon vanilla paste
    pink sea salt

    *Dagoba xocolatl with crushed cocoa nib and fresh ground smoked chile powder

    In a small glasds bowl, soak the goji berries in the rum. Sit aside.

    Whisk together 1/2 cup sugar, milk and cream in a bain de Marie until the sugar dissolves and the mixture almost boils, about 3-5 minutes.

    Whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and the egg yolks until it forms a ribbon and is yellow and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.

    Add about a 1 cup of the cream mixture into the eggs and whisk to combine.

    Pour the egg/cream mixture into the cream mixture on the stove.

    Whisk in cocoa, vanilla paste and a pinch of sea salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 7-9 minutes or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.

    Remove from heat and whisk in the chopped chocolate.

    Strain mixture into a bowl.

    Drain the goji berries and stir them in. Allow to cool on the counter then cover and place in the refrigerator to cool completely then pour into a ice cream maker and churn until cold and set.Place in a freeze-safe container and freeze until solid. Serve with a sprinkling of pink sea salt

    looks yummy...

    the ones I have seen are HARD not soft like sultanas

    muffins anyone?
