   From  Leslie March
   Place grape leaves in a flat bowl. Pour boiling water over and
   Sauté onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil until soft, add parsley,
   rice, nuts,dill, raisins and lemon peel. Sauté 3-4 minutes, until
   nuts are brown. Pour in 1 1/2 cups broth. Cover, reduce heat,
   simmer until liquid is absorbed, 12-15 minutes.
   Place leaves on flat surface, vein side up.
   Fill with about 1 tablespoons filling and roll up, tucking ends in.
   Mix 1 1/2 cups broth with 1/2 cup olive oil and lemon juice.
   Place stuffed grape leaves in deep kettle or dutch oven, seam
   side down.
   After first layer, pour half of broth mixture over leaves, add
   rest of
   leaves and rest of broth mixture.
   Bring to boil over medium heat, cover, reduce heat and simmer 45  minutes.
   I like these best at room temperature, but they can also be
   served hot or cold.
   Comments from Estela:...In Istanbul, the woman who taught
   me to make them used currants instead of raisins, and in some
   restaurants bulghur wheat was substituted for the rice,which made
   for a nicer filling. The grape leaves are rolled into small tight
   tubes that look like cigar stubs and are placed compactly in the
   pot to keep them from undoing during cooking. ...I do mine in the
   microwave with a minimal amount of liquid. It’s quick and works
   great. Estela
