Quick Tip — Hulling Strawberries


The other day, I was reading through the comments for Pioneer Woman's Strawberry Shortcake Cake recipe and discovered a fun and effective way of hulling strawberries.

Use a straw!


You push a straw into the bottom of the strawberry...




and out through the top.


Ta Da!


It's not perfect every time, especially on really large berries, but did a great job overall. Try it sometime!

Here's my attempt at PW's Strawberry Shortcake Cake. It was very good, but VERY sweet, especially the icing. A small slice of this goes a long way!

  1. I love this! My kids can even help do this (and will probably love it). Alton Brown also recommends using the star-shaped decorating tip from a pastry bag set (insert, twist, extract), but I have yet to try it.

    Anyway, I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.

    Best,
