To dry the citrus zests: Place the zest on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 25 seconds, repeat as needed.
In a coffee grinder combine the juniper berries, all the dried zests, and coriander seeds. Grind the mixture into a fine powder and set aside. In an electric mixer, using the whisk attachment, beat the eggs whites until they form medium peaks. Add the sugar and mix together for 1 minute or until the sugar dissolves. Add the ground botanicals or zest powder and gently fold into the meringue. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the meringue mixture across as thinly as possible. Bake the meringue for 2 hours, or until the meringue is crisp. Break the meringue into pieces and reserve in an air tight container.
