As strawberries start to make a sweet comeback at our local farmer’s markets and u-picks become the weekend destination, it’s only appropriate that I share two of my favorite kitchen hacks when it comes to hulling strawberries.
1. Using a Grapefruit Spoon or Melon Baller: Use the sharp “teeth” of the spoon to simply scoop and remove the stem. Yes, it’s as easy as that.
2. Using a Straw: That’s right, that same straw that helps quench your thirst, can be used to hull your strawberries. Simply insert the straw at the bottom center tip of your strawberry leading its way straight toward the top stem. Push through the top, center of the stem, and if aligned correctly, the straw will push the stem right out the top.
For other terrific tips and hundreds of recipes, including several featuring strawberries, like my Watermelon Strawberry Spritzer, Strawberry Vinaigrette, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, and my Berry Shortcake with Lemon Cake and Mint Whipping Cream, to name a few, visit my website (thetabletogether.com). While there, consider “subscribing” and I will send a new tip or blog post directly to your inbox every Tuesday and Wednesday morning!
