Barberry – The berries of several members of the Berberis and Mahonia genera, they have a pleasantly acidic flavour reminiscent of tart currants. The red berries of the Berberis genus are used to flavour pilaffs, stuffing’s, stews, and meats in central Asia and Iran, and in India the dried berries are added to desserts. They are also used fresh in meat and seafood dishes where their tartness is akin to lemon juice. The dark blue berries of Oregon grape (Mahonia aquifolium) can be used the same way.
