Technique: How to hull a strawberry

To hull a strawberry, the goal is to take as little of the luscious flesh away as possible. If you cut straight across the top of the berry, you lose the shoulders, which ideally are farm-stand red and juicy and not Costco-berry white. Cut into the berry directly around the stem, on an angle. You will take out both the stem and hull at once.

These strawberries, by the way, were picked by a whole bunch of Aboods at Pond Hill Farm in Harbor Springs.

  5. Thank you for sharing your delicious food and photos here, Maureen, as well as your family and your peaceful sense of life. When I think of the stories and recipes you are sharing here, I hear no clanging and drum-beating; rather, its the velvety smooth silence of a wooden spoon stirring homemade yogurt in a ceramic bowl. I look forward to reading many more of your stories. And, yes, The Greenbrier feels right for your talents.

    Maureen, your blog and pictures are truly exquiste. The picture of the cherries and cherry sign are so comforting and familar to me, having grown up in Mich. and visiting TC. Your may want to consider selling your photos.
