Verjuice is unfermented grape juice blended from green, whole-bunched noble grape varietals. It is used as an acidulant to add sharpness to cooking, instead of vinegar or lemon juice. Because it has the same acid base as wine, it will not distort the flavour of wine.
Verjuice is available from selected supermarkets and delis countrywide. In an emergency, use semi-sweet white wine.
