Are maple leaves edible?

Anyone ever eaten these? I'm thinking of trying them stuffed, but I don't want to kill anybody.

    1. I would stick with grape leaves or cabbage, unless you are feeding goats.

          Interesting. If we can trade leaves for oil, that's good capitalism. I have youthful memories of drinking a scoop of the cold maple sap, before the syrup boil. I always thought the sap was a worthy beverage in it's own right.

        2. the other thing with this.....is you'd have to make very sure that you were using untreated, unsprayed leaves from trees no?

          1. Good for caterpillers. I wouldn't bother feeding them to humans.
