Again this year (2010) we have made a
$12.00 (500ml bottle)
Released Feb-2010; available at the winery, and at our table at
the Farmers Markets. Verjus is the non-fermented juice from
underripe grapes. It can be used in cooking whereever you would
otherwise use lemon juice.
Like wine, verjus gets it's tartness from malic and lactic
acids, as opposed to lemon juice which is comprised of citric
acid. This means that food cooked with verjus, when served with
wine, will not have the metallic clashing that a citric-based
tartening agent may have.
