Whenever I trim strawberries, I always end up feeling guilty for binning the ends since you can never be precise enough on how much of the actual fruit you end up cutting off. So a few days ago I finally found a way to use them in a scrumptious way.
Just take your rinsed strawberry tops and place them into a large jar. Fill it with water and let it sit for an hour or so in your fridge. It will create softly infused, fruity water.
We made two variations: one with strawberry tops and basil and another one with strawberry tops and mint. Both ended up great! How do you use your strawberry tops? Our friend makes ice cream topping sauce with them. xo
P.S: And a few other takes on strawberries.
