Removing strawberry caps and hulls in a pinch

A strawberry huller efficiently removes the fruit's stem and green cap.

If you want to remove strawberry caps and hulls quickly and cleanly, I recommend investing a buck or two in a strawberry huller. This small inexpensive kitchen tool, rather like a fat tweezer, will pinch off the green tops of strawberries efficiently so you don’t waste fruit or stain your fingers.

I use mine when I’m facing a large batch of strawberries that need hulling, or even just a few berries, probably because the little tool works well and is fun to use!

You should be able to find a huller almost wherever kitchen tools are sold.

  1. Would you mind if I used your picture on my blog http://theadventuresofbear.blogspot.com?

    I am doing a series on activities to refine toddlers’ pincer grasp and want to do a post about strawberry hullers. I do not have a huller at home to photograph and can not find one in the stores here (Costa Rica). I will link your post if you gave me permission to use the photo.
    Thank you.
