Verjus a French term translated means "green juice." A medieval condiment once a staple of French provincial cooking now enjoying a worldwide revival. Made from semi-ripe and unfermented wine grapes. The grapes are picked from the vine during veraison, when the grapes change in color and the berries begin to soften enough to press. Because verjus is made from wine grapes and shares the same acid-base as wine, it is an elegant and delicate alternative to vinegar and lemon juice in a variety of culinary applications as it is "wine friendly" so will not distort the essence of the wine you pair with the dish.
