    Rita~'s Note:

    This makes a great Lebanese appetizer served with yogurt and pita. Snip the stems of the grape leaves if they are tough. Cover the leaves with a heavy plate that just fits inside the pot and weigh it down with some thing heavy (the leaves should not be free to move around, otherwise they become unwrapped). Look here http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=250725 for step x step photos on how to make.

      Wonderful! I am pitifully lacking in pots and pans, so wasn't able to steam them correctly, but they still turned out (my friend has grape leaves growing in her garden, so they were super fresh!). You are also to blame for my current fixation with adding currants and pine nuts to everything lol. My boyfriend isn't as thrilled with the grape leaves as I am, but he peeled it apart and loved the filling. I am definitely making this again.
