How To Hull a Strawberry


You have probably looked at a recipe for a jam, pie, tart, etc that has as an ingredient “strawberries, hulled”. If you ever wondered what hulling meant, it is basically removing the leafy part and the stem that is attached, of the strawberry.

You can purchase a strawberry huller to do the deed, or use a paring knife to quickly remove the stem left inside the strawberry.

• Hubby put the rhubarb in a ziploc bag, the unzipped ziploc into a foodsaver bag. He then used his foodsaver on canister mode. At this point he sucked all the air out of the foodsaver bag which also squished all the air out of the ziploc bag. He quickly zipped closed the ziploc bag, and removed it from the foodsaver bag.

• The foodsaver bag never sealed because he never used the heating element, and he was able to suck all the air out of the ziploc bag!

• The bags are now labeled and ready for freezing. These will easily keep for 4-6 months
