Fresh grape leaves
Step by step
The leaves are washed one by one and left to drain a little.
Bring the water to a boil, when it starts to boil add the salt.
Add the leaves and let it simmer for 20-30 seconds. Notice that they change color, then quickly remove them.
Put them under a stream of cold water and let them cool for 2-3 minutes.
Let the scalded leaves drain well of water, I usually put them in a sieve or in that special pot for pasta.
Then take a leaf, put it on a bottom and follow the steps carefully - I have tested various freezing methods and I promise you that this is the most optimal and elegant.
Bend the leaf on both sides so that it is about the width of a finger.
And lightly roll the leaf from the edge like a cigarette.
And voila! One piece of leaf for a delicious wire is ready :)
Put these little rolls in a bag, one on top of the other - I put about 20 pieces in each bag.
After you have filled the bag, gently remove the air from it and tie it tighter, so that the leaves do not sway there.
And here in a bigger bag I put all the small bags - in winter I take out enough and I'm a housewife :)
Put them in the freezer, when you need to take them out in time, to defrost them naturally - otherwise you ruin them and break them.
(put as many as you want)
