If like me, you don’t own a strawberry huller but you really want to take full advantage of those scrumptious berries before they are gone for the rest of the year, here is a nifty little trick to hull them using an ordinary drinking straw:) That is right!
Here is how: Simply place the straw against the bottom of the strawberry, lining it up as best as possible with the stem on the other side. Then just push the straw gently through the strawberry to the base of the stem and all the way through the berry until the stem pops out. Ta-dah, and that is how you can get a cored strawberry!
Ha, who would have thought? Would you give this a go? Last week, I made strawberry scones using this trick. Worked like a charm. Now onto jam:)
P.S: Plus, more tips on: pitting cherries, halving cherry tomatoes, peeling kiwis, chilling wine, ripening avocados and peeling garlic.
P.P.S: My favourite avocado trick ever!
