Sam Sifton on Duck Ragù

This recipe looks awesome. However, I've never seen juniper berries in the store... though admittedly, it's not like I've been looking for them. While I had assumed the only place you'd encounter them is gin, I guess they're a traditional spice for wild game, and I recall Anna recently came across another recipe (a dessert of some kind) that called for them. We've been meaing to check out Penzey's in Arlington to see if it's better than Christina's... so perhaps collecting some juniper berries will provide the impetus for a visit.
