Freezing Grape Leaves

This year I freeze grape leaves , after I took about 15 bunches from an old woman in the market. By the way, you can do the same with other leaves, I tested - they are perfect after thawing, as if they are freshly prepared for cooking.

I recommend the freezer for everyone, make an investment but for sure you are satisfied all year round with natural vegetables and fruits. Along the way I will show you other methods of freezing vegetables / fruits, it is my favorite method and the most convenient and fast - the lids do not jump and nothing breaks.
