How Do You Hull Strawberries?

Although my mom doesn't cook, she has a few signature kitchen habits. One of them is always hulling strawberries. She not only removes the stems, but the white center as well. This is a habit I've picked up and now I remove the white centers when hulling strawberries. What's your technique?

The berries that I get from my inlaws' farm are usually so ripe that I don't need to really do anything except yank the stem out and eat them, but the store-bought ones are generally a little green around the top, so I use a spoon or a drinking straw to take the stems out.

Roaring is totally right. I grew up in farm land, and it's hard for me to eat store bought strawberries. If I do, I take the white out because it brings all the flavor down. It's also really yummy to remove the white and fill the berry with basil infused cream cheese.

Agree with Liss and fuzzles, unless I'm making some sorta dessert then I use this cute little tool that just removes the stem very nicely and it's not too time consuming.

It's so funny -- I've never even thought about this question. I think I do a little bit of both. Definitely the green, and some of the white, but not all of it.

I can't say it often enough: If your strawberries were ripe enough, you could just pull on the leaves and the leaves, along with the white core would come out. Grow some yourself and see what I mean.

I used to hull the strawberries when I was a child. Now that I eat a TON of strawberries each week, it takes to much time. I just cut off the stem and chop up my berries when need be.
