  1. I believe verjus is the same thing as a common Persian cooking ingredient named "ab-gureh" a.k.a. sour grape juice. The descriptions match completely and according to some web sites they are one and the same. You can find sour grape juice at any Persian grocery store in Vancouver.

        I saw verjus recently at the big Bosa and at Gourmet Warehouse. I saw Persian sour grape juice at Yaas Bazaar in North Van a couple of months ago.

          have any idea of prices? i'm guessing the Persian stuff would be much cheaper

              I was at Yas Bazaar today. The sour grape juice is $1.99 for a 265 ml bottle. At that price it may be worth a try/taste test.

      2. Sure do! EdibleBC on Granville Island stocks it; and I know this bc I work there and we just finished inventory for the year so there are DEF bottles on the shelf.
        Open 7 days a week 9am-7pm EXCEPT NY's Eve (closing @ 4pm) and Closed NYs Day.

        1. alright peeps thanks for the info
