Chop 1/2 of the juniper berries fine and roll the
pork fillets through these berries. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to
taste. Fry the fillets brown in the butter on all sides, add half of
the Dutch gin, the remaining juniper berries and half a cup of water
and close the pan. Simmer for 25 minutes. Take the pork fillets out
and keep them warm. Add the cream to the pan and reduce until the sauce
has thickened sufficiently. Add the remaining Dutch gin and serve the
sauce with the pork.
