Verjus is the juice extracted from unripe grapes. It is fast becoming a popular alternative to vinegar. The tart fresh juice is used in sauces, for poaching fish and meat, and to dress lettuces, vegetables and fruit.

Terry and Julie Dolle of Orange Mountain have been producing Verjus for 5 years from grapes in the Orange and surrounding region
