Preserving Grape Leaves

Asked June 12, 2016, 9:50 AM EDT

What is the proper brine solution and water bath time to process grape leaves? I've found several recipes, but am not sure they are safe to use.

At this time OSU/USDA does do not have a research based recipe for the brine or processing time for preserving grape leaves.. There are recipes on the internet but we cannot be assured that they are tested for safety. Grape leaves can be added to dill pickles to help keep the pickles firm but that is in small quantities.
