This uses simple ingredients and simple preparation and in my book that always equals a winner. This is very aromatic and tastes lovely. I topped on crackers for a wonderful afternoon snack. Thanks for a great recipe Sharon!

  3. Push juniper berries and bay leaves down sides in decorative pattern and cover completely with olive oil.
  4. Cover and let marinate 1 week to 1 month in the refrigerator.

  6. Note: If using soft goat cheese, you may layer in a square or rectangular container with lid, so cheese won't flatten.
