Hull Strawberries The Right Way To Save The Most Fruit

Before you go chopping up your next punnet of strawberries, or ripping the green off of the top aimlessly, you should know there's an easy way to hull strawberries while preserving as much of the fruit as you possibly can. Here's how to do it.

In case you aren't familiar, removing the greens and the bigger cap from the top of a strawberry is called "hulling" it, and while most people just chop off the top of their berries, that wastes perfectly good fruit at the top that you could be eating. Posted over at Saveur, this handy video shows us how, with one quick motion, to use a knife to hull strawberries quickly while leaving the delicious fruit behind.

The best part of this trick is that you can fill the berries afterward, or just pop the whole remaining berry in your mouth and enjoy. Is this how you do it, or do you use the greens at the top as a handle when you eat strawberries? Let us know in the comments.

    I do this- but good tip about putting your thumb where you want the blade to stop (otherwise you get very empty strawberries! and the 45 degree angle.

    Also, I had to click though to get the video to work, but it's probably due to some weird setting on my end.

    I have 4cm thumbnails. They do nicely.
