|For a few years now, verjus (vair-ZHOO) has been adopted in top culinary circles. But few consumers, even those who love to cook, know what it is.
Verjus is the juice pressed from unripe grapes. The name means green juice in French, but the product dates back to at least ancient Rome (where it was called acresta).

It’s also a great gift for anyone who loves to cook and for calorie counters.
Use verjus instead of vinegar or citrus on
