Selected User Reviews For Cortas - Grape Leave, 35 oz
It had thick leaves and thick vines, some of which had holes or were tattered. I did not find a single grapeleaf that did not have a hole or was not torn in the whole jar. It is unimaginable! I have not found In the end, I placed a few leaves at the bottom of the pot and at the top of the pot since the cracks and holes there didn't affect the results. In order to make stuffed grape leaves I patched a few leaves. Nevertheless I used another brand (yergat) for the rest. Are you surprised? Besides the taste, there's a huge difference between the two. It has a taste that is not as pleasant and the shorts are slaty. If you want to buy grape leaves in the future, you should buy another brand (yergat, Orlando, and Mechaalany The quality of this brand is trash ("zbeleh", for those who speak Arabic).
This product has been a great buy for me. I shopped and compared several brands of grape leaves, but I chose Cortas because it did not contain preservatives such as Benzoic acid (Sodium Benzoate) like other brands do. As the leaves are very young and tender, I do not need to cook them to prepare dolmas. Since I don't want to destroy their vitamin and nutrient content, I prefer to eat them raw. In the event that a few dolmas happen to have a hole or tear, I simply interpose them when making the My healthy dolma recipe is posted on my blog Shirley's Best Food A wellness-oriented attitude In a café.

My frustrations with the grocery store leaves began after I got frustrated with the quality of the leaves I was getting Dolmates couldn't be made with many of them because they were too small. As a result, I opted to order them online and tried them at last. My only complaint is that the leaves are too big and not tender enough. I only used two of the four rolls of leaves in the jar for a pound of meat, as it is a fairly large container. The product is excellent and I would recommend it.
There were 2x as many grape leaves for about the same price as the Orlando California grape leaves, so I took a chance on these. There is a difference in volume between the bottle and Orlando's 16 ounces. There are 3 rolls in this bottle instead of 2 in Orlando, but they don't look to have any more leaves. It was common to find holes or tears in the leaves, which meant that I had to double the leaves on The California grape leaves are going to be my go-to dish again.
Initially packaged nicely, except for the fact that the lid was not sealed and all the liquid was still in the jar. The product I'd like to replace is not returnable, and I'd like it to be.
I hate it! There was no way you could have rolled anything inside most of the leaves because they were so small. In the jar, about 25 percent of the leaves were ripped. I have to manually pluck off long stems because they just take too much time. You can purchase it for $99).
You lose almost 25% of the quantity because most of it was ripped, as you can see in the photo.
I have never purchased leaves like that before! Filling or separating them does not tear them apart to the point where they start tearing. It's an excellent excellent excellent job! Is there anything I can say to highlight their excellence?.
