Notes and Tips

A’des Bi-Husrum is originally prepared by using verjuice not lemon juice, but some people now are using lemon juice in this dish like I did.
Verjuice “Arabic: Husrum” is the pressed juice of unripened grapes, and we usually prepare it at home by juicing the unripened grapes in a juicer or you can use the blender but you have to get very pure juice, then boil the juice for few minutes and pour the boiled juice to airtight bottles then cover the juice with olive oil  which helps to protect it, and store in cool dry dark place, you have to store in the refrigerator once you open it. Verjuice is used in cooking or in salad dressing.

Some people add crushed garlic to the ghee when they heat it and they add the ghee with the sauteed garlic to the dish, and this is an option.

If you want to reheat the dish and you noticed that it is thickened, or you stored the dish in the fridge and you want to reheat the leftovers, so all you have to do is to reheat with continues stirring and the dish will return to the required consistency, and it is okay to add some water while you are reheating it.
