1 tablespoon dried juniper berries, crushed in a pestle and mortar 
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed  
2 tablespoons oil for frying 
4 rashers of rindless streaky bacon, finely chopped 
1 small to medium cabbage (Savoy or January King are good), tough core removed, leaves shredded

Use a pestle and mortar (or a rolling pin and small sturdy bowl) to crush the juniper berries, garlic and a teaspoon of salt together. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the bacon and fry until it is just starting to brown. Add the cabbage and juniper mixture and fry until the cabbage is just starting to soften but still has some bite (about 5 minutes or so). Season to taste.
