As raw leaves, cut the stalks, put on each other - 5, 6, 7 sheets, so that it can be wound on a tight roll to be able to enter through the neck of the bottle. When winding. the leaves are placed one over another, with the smooth side up, and when rolled, flat side must remain inside. In the bottle leaves develop, but it does not matter as to pull the leaves are cut bottle. The vial is shaken gently after each roll to be able to be filled tightly. Fill up and close. When using cut the bottle and take out the leaves, scalded and are ready to use. Weight of the bottles depends on how dolmas will prepare because once you open the bottle, all the leaves should be used.
