The lid is screwed on and only good things to make sarmalute in winter!
How and when is the vine planted?
The ideal period for planting vines is spring, in March-April. During this period, in the soil, at a depth of 40-50 centimeters, the temperature reaches up to about 8-10 degrees Celsius.
If planting is done in May, it is recommended to do it on heavy soils with excess moisture. If the soil is well drained, however, planting can be done in the fall, but before temperatures drop below 0 degrees Celsius.
BEEF LEAVES IN THE JAR OR IN THE FREEZER
Winter vine leaves stored in a jar or freezer for the winter are a good idea for natural preservation, without preservatives.
The vine leaves are harvested in May-June (depending on the areas where you live), when the vine is ripe, with a suitable size (neither too big nor too small), when the leaf is still raw . Choose light green leaves that do not have thickened ribs.
Vine leaf dishes are popular in Balkan cuisine in Eastern Europe, but we also find them in Turkish or Lebanese cuisine. We are lovers of beef sarmales. I ate them in Greece, Turkey, in the Republic of Moldova but also in Lebanese restaurants in Bucharest.
They may have the same fillings, but the taste is totally different and this is primarily due to the spices used.
If you want to keep live beef leaves in order to be able to prepare your favorite sarmales in winter, you have to decide if you want to put them in the freezer or keep them in a jar. I will show you how I did for both options. Fortunately, I have vines in the yard and I noticed that when you cut branches in the summer that grow without grapes, new, fresh branches appear on them, so I can enjoy in July or August vines like now.
To show you how to store vine leaves in a jar or freezer for the winter, I used 24 leaves for the bag and 36 leaves for the jar.
I choose to group 4 leaves in each roll. This is the portion of a person in our house at a table. If you know you are eating more than 4 pieces, put as many as you usually eat and in this way defrost or open the right jar for the number of people you are going to cook for.
We don't spray the vines with anything. For this reason, some leaves will be eaten over the summer, but we choose to eat at least a little of the garden 100% natural. If you use sprayed vine leaves, be sure to wash them under running water very well!
You will notice that in both cases the vine leaves were rolled. But I chose two different ways to do this. For those in the bag I chose to leave the leaf open, overlapping the rest and running from top to inside. They must take up little space, so that we can put them over other bags in the freezer, so that we don't risk breaking them. You will see below how I proceeded for those kept in the jar.
I let you see what you need and how the vine leaves were put in the jar or freezer for the winter.
60 g salt never before & # 8211 pickle salt
I started with the jar. I washed it well, then put it in the oven at 100 ° C for 10 minutes. I closed the oven and left the jar to wait until it was time to use it.
I picked the vine leaves, trying to sort them by size. I washed them, then removed the tail.
I prepared brine by boiling salted water (30 g per 1 l of water). I gradually put the leaves in water and scalded them for about 30 seconds. When they change color, I took them out of the water and put them in cold water (with ice) for a few seconds. I took them out and left them on a plate.
So far the method is the same for both variants of preserving the vine leaves.
For the leaves kept in the freezer, we arrange groups of 4 leaves, one on top of the other. We run from the top to the base, inserting the edges inside. We arrange the rolls in bags and seal them trying to eliminate the air.
For the leaves kept in the jar, take the leaf by leaf and bend it on the middle rib. I also stacked 4 pieces and rolled from the base to the top. I put the rolls obtained in the jar and poured hot brine over it.
I sealed and let the jar cool slowly under the blanket, then I put it in a cool room (if you have a cellar or storage room in the block it would be advisable to keep it in a cooler place than the ambient temperature).
When I was with my friend Mihaela in the Republic of Moldova, I saw in a boarding house how cans were kept for the winter. Jars of vine leaves were among other vegetables.
It can be seen that there is no pre-arranged arrangement, they are piled up, but the jars are very large.
I am convinced that it resists very well even so, and the guests of the pension from Orhei will enjoy sarmalute in vine leaves in winter as well.

LIVER BEEF FOR WINTER
Winter Vine Leaf Recipe I have been asked many times, so now I will write here, how to preserve vines in salt, in brine, in the freezer or simply natural.
Young leaves are chosen, non-porous, without hand (disease), completely green and especially, not sprayed. The cabbage leaves are harvested before the vines bloom, before the first spraying. If the vine has bloomed, the leaves are not harvested until the grapes are formed, so that the flowers do not shake and the red of the vine is affected.
We sprinkle grapes from Romania with Bordeaux juice (eggplant stone), which is not toxic, but we always harvest the leaves before spraying.
4 recipes to prepare Vine leaf for the winter. Simple, peasant methods, without preservatives.
1. LIVER BEEF FOR WINTER, IN THE FREEZER, THE EASIEST METHOD.
Wash the leaves, boil for 2-3 minutes in boiling water, remove and rinse immediately with cold water. Leave it to drain, then put it in bags, in the freezer, depending on how many leaves you know you need 1 time.
If you want to see everything video-find here.
2. LIVER BEEF FOR WINTER, NATURAL, IN PLASTIC BOTTLE (PET).
This is an extremely simple method that I have been using for many years. The vine leaves are not washed, they are shaken well, they do not have beetles, they are chosen by the tails and 1-2 leaves are made into bunches. Put in 1.5 l bottles (very dry, not to have water splashes at all). My pet in the picture has a few drops of water, so you do what I say, not the way I did, right? I put now, to show you how it is done, I have the vine leaf sent by my mother, from Romania. Thicken well with the tail of a wooden spoon or a stick. When the can is full, put the stopper and place it on the shelf in the pantry. When you want to make sarmalute with beef leaf, cut the can, open the leaves, wash them, scald them for 3-4 minutes, rinse them with cold water… and make sarmalute.
3. LIVE BEEF FOR WINTER, SALT.
The leaves chosen by the tails, washed, sprinkled with salt and put in jars, buckets, cans, a few… as each housewife wants. Mine salt is used, never, pickle salt. Among the leaves, you can add green dill, parsley, larch, as desired. In Moldova, there are areas where corcoduses or green plums are placed among the leaves. These corcoduses are boiled together with the sarmalele, when the sarmalele are made and soured, or the soups are used in winter.
Leave room for 1-2 fingers and put a thick layer of salt on top. That's it. The leaves will leave their liquid and will be perfectly preserved. They will be salty and hard, so it is good to put them in the evening the day before and change the water a few times.
When they are desiccated, add salt (as many as 3 fingers) in the water. This way, the leaves will fall off faster.
4. BEEF LEAF FOR WINTER, IN BRINE.
The selected and washed leaves are placed in layers or bunches, in jars, buckets, drums. You can put, just like the ones with salt, dill, parsley, celery, larch, green corcoduse. Make a brine (saline solution) to float the egg. Put 200 g of large salt (mine, unripe) in 1 l of water and put everything on the fire. Stir until the salt melts, no need to boil. Pour over the beef leaves, it does not need to be left to cool.
