Goji Berries are one of those foods you can't escape these days. Known as a superfood and touted as a antioxidant powerhouse, goji berries (also called wolfberries) have become increasingly popular in recent years.

The dried, pink berries, which taste sort of like dried cranberries, come from the Himalayas and China, where they've been eaten for centuries. Goji berries are high in Vitamin C and E, have been said to help boost metabolism, and are recommended for the treatment of diabetes and high blood pressure, to name a few.

But while goji berries may be a darling of the health food world today, not everyone knows exactly how to use them. We've got some great ideas for you. Basically, you should treat them as you would any other dried fruit. Or, you can try the powder version for baking or mixing into tea, and goji juice for drinking.
