the cooking juice
This artisanal Verjus is a labor of love for our family. We produce limited quantities, starting with the green thinning semi-ripe wine grapes, these 'green' grapes come from the viticulture practice of thinning, from our vineyards. This first harvest in the vineyard is now called our Verjus harvest!
Verjus is an acidulant for cooking - to use in place of Lemon Juice, Balsamic or Red Wine Vinegar or Rice Wine Vinegar.
This centuries old ingredient can be used in place of vinegars in your favorite vinaigrette recipe, splashed over fresh cut seasonal fruit, used in place of water for steaming vegetables or light white fish, and used for deglazing pans to name just a few culinary uses.
