SERVICE & PAIRING
Verjus is much appreciated by many chefs as a milder alternative to lemon juice and vinegar, in particular because verjus and wine do not clash as they have the same malic acid base. Add it as a gentle acidulant whenever you want just a bite of flavour. Verjus can be used all by itself in a salad dressing or to heighten the flavours of soups and sauces. It makes an excellent marinade and may be used for cooking or deglazing or even to add a special zing to cocktails and desserts.
The unripe grapes are pressed and the juice is kept cool for up to three weeks to allow natural sedimentation to occur. Then it is filtered and gently pasteurised before bottling.
