How to cook tomatoes in grape leaves
Prepare the jars: wash, sterilize and dry from moisture. We'll wash the tomatoes in advance, take away the good tomatoes from the spoiled ones, remove the stalk. We chop tomatoes with a toothpick or a fork, so the vegetable will save the skin and can be quickly preserved. At the bottom of the cans we place fresh greens and garlic slices.
We select the leaves of grapes without damage, wash well and dry them from moisture. We recommend using grape leaves the size of a few centimeters in size on all sides so that you can freely twist the tomato.
Now put the grape leaves, place the tomato in the middle and gently wrap. Put the wrapped tomatoes in a jar. For aroma we alternate layers of spices: tomatoes, bay leaves, black pepper peas and carnation buds.
Cook the pickle for preservation: pour cold water into the pan, dissolve the sugar and coarse salt. Mix the ingredients and boil. Fill the jars to the very edges with a hot pickle, cover with a lid and leave for 5-7 minutes. Then pour the brine and pour the fruit again, repeat 2 times.
On the last approach, we fill the banks with boiling marinade, hermetically close. We wrap it in a warm cloth / quilt, leave to be cooked for 8-10 hours. Be sure to check the jar for correct closure: when turning over the liquid should not leak out from under the lid.
Store fragrant tomatoes, canned with grape leaves, in a dark, cool room.
