If you’re kids are like mine, they love to dig into the strawberries. But it’s always annoying to cut off the little green stems. So I figured out this little trick and now they are able to de-stem their own strawberries!
Here’s what you do…
- Get some of these frozen drink straws. Plastic straws will also work, but they aren’t quite as sturdy so they may not work as well.
- Get your washed strawberry and place the straw at the bottom (opposite end of the stem).
- Firmly push the straw through the berry until it pops the top off.
- There you have it! A perfectly stemmed strawberry.
P.S. I couldn’t find the metal straws in stores so I ordered mine on Amazon.
