One taste of spring's debut fruit, and we're ready to get in the kitchen. How about you?
Before you slice, cut in half, puree, or chop strawberries for a recipe you should “hull.” This term means removing the leaves and tiny core beneath the cap of the berry.
A paring knife will do it, but be careful not to remove too much fruit. To use a tweezer-like strawberry huller (available at kitchen shops), pinch the berry right beneath the cap and twist.
