Verjus | a tart versatile winegrape juice for cooking.
SIZE : 500ml

To use in place (or addition to) of Lemon Juice, Balsamic or Red Wine Vinegar or Rice Wine Vinegar.

This centuries old ingredient is used in place of vinegars in your favorite vinaigrette recipe, splashed over fresh cut seasonal fruit, steaming vegetables or light white fish, and deglazing pans. Use in risottos and rice, as a bath for fish from salmon to clams. Marinades for red or white meats including chicken and pork. If you usually use Lemons, Lime or Vinegars, reach for Verjus instead!

Verjus is a your choice for a gentle acid and does not overtake the existing flavors in your dishes. Verjus heightens rather than mask flavors in cooking.

What exactly is Verjus? Verjus is made from the thinning of semi-ripe organically grown winegrapes in our vineyards during veraison.  Thinning these 'green' grapes or veraison is an essential viticulture practice when growing premium winegrapes. This first harvest in the vineyard is now named our Verjus harvest!
