We were skeptical. Follow Directions But once we did it they turned out GREAT!! I put them in a Skillet with water and spice to my taste and cooked like I would cabbage. They were delicious. We are doing them the second round and look forward to trying them in a salad this time. We plan on buying a larger package next time. If you have more than 2 people you may want to buy a larger package. We are 2. Absolutly Recommend it!
