Pour boiling water over cabbage leaves and let stand about 4 minutes, then drain. Mix well the sausage, rice (or potatoes), and salt. Place meat mixture in equal portions on each cabbage leaf. Roll from stem end, folding in the sides, to wrap meat in leaf. Tie each bundle with string or fasten with toothpicks. Place rolls in kettle and cover with tomato juice, boiling water, and vinegar. Add sugar. Simmer until tender, about 1 hour.
