Grape leaves are edible, and you can dry yours to make a lovely tea that will remind you of an earthy green tea. This is a great way to make use of cuttings that would otherwise be thrown away.
First, collect one grape leaf about as big as your hand, then collect baby grape leaves about as big as a quarter. Put the baby grape leaves in the middle of the larger grape leaf.
Fold up the bottom left corner.
Fold up the bottom right corner.
Fold over the top left part of the leaf.
Fold over the top right part of the leaf.
Fold down the point to complete your "envelope."
Lay these "envelopes" out on a dehydrator tray, and dehydrate these at 150F overnight.
Add boiling water to your dried grape leaf tea.....
