Can't find any. Am feeling creative.

Any ideas?

    Did you try kalustyan's?
    Or sahadi's might- their site just calls them dried vine leaves, so not sure if they're fig vs grape leaves....

      You'll have to grow your own or find an old Italian who does. The season's over in any event.

        Fresh fig leaves in January? Probably not.

          Thanks for the replies.

          Kalustyan's was the first place I tried. Grape leaves, fig leaves, I'm easy. Maybe Astoria. Gotta hit the Net, also, I guess.

            I grow grapes. My plants won't begin budding until April so I don't get leaves large enough to use for stuffing until late May so I think you will probably have to go with bottled leaves until that time.
