8 oz(1/2 a jar) grape leaves. (in the international foods isle)
1 cmedium grain rice
1 1/2 Tbsponion flakes, dehydrated
1 Tbspdry mint leaves crushed
1 Tbspdry parsley
3/4 Tbspdry dill

How to Make Unstuffed grape leaves
- Take the grape leaves out of the jar and unroll them.
Bring 6 cups of water to boil in a large pot and boil the grape leaves for 1 minutes to remove the taste of the preservatives.
Drain and let them cool enough to handle. When the leaves are cool cut them into bite size pieces. (I use my kitchen scissors)
