Is there a leaf that you can buy in northern climates and stuff?
Other than cabbage, which imparts a distinctive flavor.
Can you stuff any of the lettuces?
I'm talking middle eastern style stuffed grape leaves. I could stuff zucchinis or peppers. and I would kill for zucchini flowers to stuff (I'll even schlep to Union Square for them this summer). What I want to know is whether anyone has stuffed anything like Boston lettuce, and whether it worked.
I know that you can buy grape leaves in jars, but, even setting the saltiness aside, the effect is very different than fresh.
