Alright I'm going to throw my cultural appropriation out there--I mean culinary! Culinary appropriation.
Grape leaves, what are they good for? Not much.
But you can stuff them and they are quite nice.
I was a bit drunk...
Either soak in very hot water for 15 minutes to soften the leaves or blanch grape leaves in a brine until they are soft (the time will depend on the leaves – fresh ones will only take a minute). Bring water to and boil. Add grape leave, approximately 12 leave at a time
Place the bundles of blanched grape leaves in freezer bags or containers and freeze. Label each bag or container with the contents, the date frozen, and the date to use by. They will keep well in the freezer for six months.

Source the grape leaves myself huh?
Can you use fresh? Do you have to treat them anyway?
Do you have to use a certain kind?
(both my neighbor and my mom have grapes!)
Thanks OP. I may have to try this!
