Strawberries

Strawberries are almost harvested year round but the optimum months for picking & cooking with them is April through June. When these bright berries emerge, a classic collection of recipes tend to be at the forefront in many Southerners minds. Shortcake, trifle, lemonade & punch are just a few of our favorites ways to indulge in them. When purchasing strawberries, look for dry, plump looking fruit. The exterior should have a sheen. Once home, store them in a single layer over paper towels in the refrigerator & do not wash them until you are ready to use them. The berries can be rinsed in a colander under cool water. Place them on a paper towel & gently blot them dry. In order to prepare strawberries for eating out of hand or recipe applications, they must be hulled which simply means that the green stems will need to be removed. Learn how to complete this simple task by following my pointers.

How To Hull Strawberries

Strawberries are a versatile fruit as they can star in dessert favorites or be used to accent side dishes, salads, beverages, breakfast classics & so much more. When preparing a bowl of fresh fruit, strawberries most certainly brighten the mix by adding comforting taste & texture. Once strawberries have been cleaned & dried, they will need to be hulled.

The Technique

Pick up the strawberry & use a sharp paring knife to remove the stem. Insert the tip at a slight angle & turn the berry whilst you cut around the green portion. Once complete, the stem should be removed as well as a good bit of the sour, white portion of it. Complete this technique for the remaining strawberries then slice & use them in a variety recipe applications.
