Berry Clever Tips for Prepping and Storing Fresh Berries

Berry Clever Tips

Berry Saver To keep strawberries fresh longer, store them in a cardboard egg carton. It allows air to circulate around the fruit better than if berries are left in the containers in which they're typically sold.

Hulling Strawberries Use a drinking straw to easily remove the hull from strawberries. After washing the berries, push a drinking straw up from the bottom point of the strawberry. The hull and stem will come out on the end of the straw, leaving a perfectly hollowed-out strawberry.

Perfect Slices When you need evenly sliced strawberries for topping desserts, use an egg slicer. Hull the berries first, then slice them just like a boiled egg. It's quicker and safer than using a knife.
