REALITY? More Foodies

No grapes this year, but I finally picked some grape leaves. Here, they’re stuffed with ground beef, chick peas, rice, and egg as binder, and herbs, then simmered in tomato sauce.

Grapes are a phenomenal gift from nature. You can use the fruit for wine, juice, and jelly. The leaves are for stuffing, either Polish style like this, or in the sweeter form as the Greeks make them. The vines themselves can be wound into plain or decorated wreaths; baskets if you’ve got that kind of time and expertise.
