Serve lukewarm or cold with slices of lemon.

The rolls can be made in late spring using the unsprayed leaves of dessert grapes as long as the leaves are still soft and not bitter. Blanch these a few at a time in very salty water for 30 seconds and pour cold water over them. Brown rice can be used in place of A.Vogel Naturreis*
