Verjus source

Anyone know where I can buy a bottle of verjus around Boston today? I'm hoping to make verjus sorbet with poached peaches this weekend. Ever seen it around?

Thanks in advance, Hounds!

      They have it, also a interesting choice of vinegars and molecular cooking ingredients. You won't get it by the weekend.

      I would give Fromaggio a call and then maybe Butcher Shop in South End as a wild guess. I never saw it at Wholefoods ....

        I've never found it here, so I would be interested too. I've always had to get it at Fairway on LI when I visit family.

        Verjus is invaluable when making sauces for those who cannot have alcohol - when cooked, it offers a reasonable approximation of white wine, but without the alcohol.

          I found it at South End Formaggio, next to the vinegars. Thanks, bowmore, for the tip! Unfortunately, I didn't love it as a sorbet, but my family did. Anyway, it's good to know where I can get it in the future.
