Go to your vine!
Start picking leaves. The softer the better.
You will need around 10-15 leaves per person.
Pick some sour grapes too.
After rinsing the leaves, drop them in boiling water for 3-5 minutes
You will notice the color change from green to brownish
The color after boiling
Mix ground meat (preferably lamb) with rice and add salt, pepper and spices
Spread the leaf with the rough side facing you
Place the stuffing as shown in this picture
Fold the sides
Then roll the leaf like a cigar, the tighter the better
This is how they should look like once rolled
Cover the bottom of the pot with leaves
Place pieces of lamb meat on top (optional)
Layer stuffed grape leaves on top
Add sour grapes, you can also squeeze a lemon to add citrusy taste. Add water to cover three quarters of the leaves but don't submerge them in water
Cook for around 2 hours on a low fire or until the rice inside the leaves is soft
Eat with Greek yogurt, ENJOY!
