verjus harvest

We all got up extra early and wandered dazed over to the far vineyards. The grapes were just right to harvest for verjus. We had been watching them closely for weeks…it is hard to time it correctly. The grapes still need to be green and not sugary but equally they need to be not too hard as we need the liquid inside to make the verjus.

Everyone worked together so we were all done by lunch time, the baking heat would not get us that day!
