After many years, this year with help of my sister we picked unripe grapes from my back garden and made verjuice – a taste all too familiar in Persian cuisine. See here for examples of its uses. The slide show below shows all the stages involved except a few very important ones:
- Unripe grapes must be separated from branches and washed thoroughly before passed through fruit juicer.
- You should add ½ tbsp. salt to each 750 ml bottle of verjuice before storing them.
- And most important of all beware that the pulp of this fruit could cause skin allergy. Wear long plastic gloves to be safe just in case.
