    Do you think a steam juicer would work? I can apple juice this way and it stores for years with no additives. Thanks,

    Hello, I use a steam extractor for making verjus and it works well. I leave the grapes on the stem. I ran across this excellent site while looking for recipes. I’m making verjus today, and was wondering how others are doing it.

    I also make verjus using a steam juicer – it yields a very fine clear concentrate. I add a pinch of citric or malic acid to taste, then process it in the canner. The heat turns the liquid rosey red, but the taste is unaltered and it keeps for years in the pantry. Refrigerate once opened.

    Funny you should post this. I recently got a beautiful shipment of unripe grapes (we call them ghooreh) from Persians/Armenians use them to add tartness to our sauces. Never thought to juice them. Even better!

    I’m curious about what would happen if the grape seeds do get crushed- will it alter the taste? I would like to try it with my masticating juicer but I’m pretty sure it will crush the seeds.
