    Here is a tip from a previous visitor to the site:

    Best Strawberry Tip …

    by Charlie Lee
    (Toronto, Canada)

    It’s strawberry season!

    I once saw on TV a great tip for removing the white parts of the strawberry, without cutting off the tops. (This saves more of the ripe fruit to eat.)

    After washing and drying the fruit, gently pull off the green top of each berry. Then, using a medium-sized straw, insert the straw from the top of the berry, right through to the bottom. The straw removes the center (white) part of the fruit and leaves you with perfect ripe product for slicing or serving whole.
