I just harvested a bunch of leaves from my very assertive grapevine and would love to try cooking with them. My husband gave a bunch to a Middle-Eastern co-worker a couple of years ago and I have it on good authority that my leaves make very good eating, but the guy never told us how he fixed them!

I'd love some ideas please! Yeah, I know, I could Google it, but I would much rather hear more personal tales!

Oh...you can leave out any pine nuts...I had a horrible reaction to them that lasted for weeks, will never touch another one!

Thanks! B)

Oh, yum! This is a very delicious and traditional dolmades recipe for which you can use fresh or brined leaves:

Yogurt Pie (sounds weird but is delectable):

BTW, many recipes use either brined OR fresh that have been blanched a minute or two to soften. Don't forget to trim out the stems down the centre!

I took an excellent Greek cooking class and have some yummy recipes at home (I am not home at the moment). I will look into them tomorrow.

Thank you so much! These look really yummy. Yes, even the Yogurt Pie! I can't wait to try them. You always have such great ideas!

We used to have a restaurant owned by a Greek family in the town where I grew up. Their avgolemono soup was to DIE for! When they retired we cried.

It's awesome that you are using grape leaves. Our climate does not permit them but we have an abundance at our Croatia house. I also plan to use old grape vines to "smoke" foods on our outdoor wood burning oven.

You have GOT to try the yogurt pie. MMMMMMMM. How sad about the Greek family retiring. Really good Greek food is hard to come by I find. Don't you just adore that soup? Oh, man.
