Verjus is the juice of green grapes that are near ripe! At harvest time, August and September in the northern hemisphere, green grape bunches are quickly snipped for the wine press. Selecting through the collected bunches, only the ripe grapes are chosen for wine. The rejects that are not selected because they are under-ripe are utilised to make verjus, which is a fruity, somewhat vinegary juice, perfect for sauces. Verjus has a distinct flavor. You can choose to snip under-ripe grapes with the express desire to make verjus, and the effort is worth it. You will find recipes for chicken, fish and pork cooked with verjus. Verjuice, by contrast, can be made up from a variety of fruits. Verjus is made only from green grapes.
