It is no secret that I love strawberries. The best strawberries in the world, as far as I am concerned, are from Manassero Farms in Orange County and I was so happy to see that my mom had bought a big crate of them for us to snack on during our visit. I usually just grab one, wash it, and eat it while holding the stem, but there are always a few juicy bites around the leaves that go to waste. I am also terrible (and dangerous) with a paring knife so when a recipe says to take the hulls out of strawberries, I usually don't. This tip solves both of those problems. All you need is a straw!
I thought that it would be easier to show you than to explain it in words, so I'm proud to present the first video ever posted on Foolin' Around in the Kitchen!
