  Categories: Ethnic, Appetizers, Meats, Rice
       Yield: 6 Servings
  
            Ingredients:  Pt 1
  
      Mix all the ingredients for the filling.
      Pick out the smallest leaves in the jar and set aside. Use some of
 these
   leaves to place a single layer on the bottom of a 2-quart heavy-lidded
   kettle.
      Cut the stems off the grape leaves.
      Spread a leaf on the counter, bottom side up, stem end toward you.
 Place
   1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of the leaf. Fold the stem end
 over
   the filling, then fold the sides over to secure the filling, then roll
 from
   you toward the tip of th
      The size should be approximately 2 1/2-inches long and 3/4-inch
 wide.
      Do not wrap these too tightly; the rice needs room for expansion
 when it
   cooks.
      Place the rolled leaves on top of the single layer in the bottom of
 the
   pot.  Place the rolls up against each other rather tightly so they will
 not
   come undone while cooking.
      Cover them with a layer of unrolled leaves, then add another layer
 of
   rolled leaves.  Continue until all rolled leaves are in the pot. Top
 with
   the remaining unrolled leaves.
      Place a medium plate over the top of the leaves as a weight.
      Mix the chicken stock and lemon juice for the broth and pour over
 the
   leaves in the pot.  Cover and bring to a light simmer. Cook 1 hour.
 Remove
   the pan from the heat and allow it to cool for 1 more hour. Do not
 remove
   the lid or the leaves will darken.
      Serve warm with Egg-Lemon Sauce on top.
      This recipe serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer course.
   
   Comments:  There was a time in Greek history when certain people were
 so
   hungry they took to eating the leaves from the grape vines. From that
 time
   of destitution comes this flavorful dish.
