Hulling Out Strawberries…Easily!

It is not uncommon today while perusing the shelves of many supermarkets and big box stores, to happen upon any number of gadgets made for one specific purpose. Some can be costly in more ways than one as these items usually end up shoved to the back of a kitchen drawer only to be seen again when we commit ourselves to spring cleaning.

This time of year, the South is abundant with strawberries and the fun of “pick-your-own” strawberry farms. Once you have these bright, red beauties home, then comes the task of digging into the middle in an attempt to remove that hard center.

However, a sturdy, plastic straw will suffice in place of stainless steel strawberry corers that can costs upwards of 10 dollars! Below, is a video to demonstrate how easy, useful and cheap, a simple plastic straw can be.

Born in Georgia and raised in North Carolina, I inherited the baking bug like so many of us; through childhood memories and standing by my mother's side as she prepared our family meal. I began this blog as a way of sharing my love of Southern baking and its treasured heritage.
