Yes, those are juniper berries. Unless you know what exactly you have, I wouldn't recommend eating them. Some varieties are slightly toxic, but most are just bitter and not tasty at all to people.

Here is a good article on edible juniper berries: https://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/20/garden/20qna.html
