Grape leaves and ff muffin recipes

Marie asked about preserving some of the grape leaves from her vines which are 
at their peak.  My idea may sound odd - contact a Greek Orthodox Church.  A few 
months ago, I borrowed a greek cookbook from a friend who attends one, where 
the cookbook was authored.  It was a fanatastic cookbook, with various recipes 
for the same things but slightly different due to family or geographical 
influences.  She told me that many of the churches she has attended have 
produced these cookbooks.  
There was a recipe for preparing grape leaves in salt brine.  She and I have 
lost contact, but I suggest that Marie contact a Greek Orthodox church in the 
area for ideas on this.  Or try the public library for traditional greek
