Tart and a powerhouse of nutrients and antioxidants, barberries are an unsung hero of fruit. These jewel-like berries come from a thorny shrub that can be found in various forms all over the world, but is particularly popular in Middle Eastern cooking.
Barberries contain a special compound called berberine, whichhas been shown to fight viruses and bacteria. This makes our barberry brown rice dish the perfect addition to any meal during cold and flu season.
Other benefits of barberries?
