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.
How To Hull a Strawberry
• Remove the surface leave.
• You will now see the leftover bit of stem core that is inside the strawberry. That is what you are removing.
• Insert your knife on the outside of the yellowish part of the leftover leaf core.
• Make an incision all around that yellow part, and then flick your wrist to “pop” it out. It will remove easily.
• You can now see clearly inside the strawberry, and all the is left is the sweet, juicy fruit and not the tart stem.
Easy-peasy! That is how to hull a strawberry!
