Barberries are a tart delight, like a tiny craisin. Also known as Zereshk, Barberries are traditionally used in Middle Eastern cuisine. They add a bright flavor to Persian rice and roast meats. Barberries add intense flavor to jams and chutneys and can also be used in baked goods like breads, fruit cake or muffins. They pair well with saffron and orange.
