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!

  1. whole foods should have verjus but i'm not positive... i would check with fromaggio in the south end also


      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 ....

      1. 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.

        1. re: Karl S

          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.
