You can eat grape leaves, so instead of throwing out my clippings, I make snacks!
When you cook with grape leaves, pick big ones (like the one in the photo) to use for lining the pan, or as a platform for grilling. You can also put these into smoothies.
You want to pick smaller leaves, about the size of your hand or a little bigger, for using as wraps.
Snip off the stem.
You can mix uncooked rice with vegetables or meat and cook these in boiling water for several hours. Mine, however, are destined for the grill, so I'm stuffing them with rice that has already been cooked.
These are going on the grill, but you could also saute, steam, or boil them.
