First, start the process by gathering the equipment and the fresh strawberries.
Next, transfer the strawberries into a large glass mixing bowl, then measure out 2 cups of cold water and add it to the bowl of berries.
Let the strawberries soak for about 5 minutes. Then, transfer the berries to a spider strainer and rinse under cold water.
After rinsing, move the strawberries to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Dry off the strawberries as best you can with another paper towel or 2, then let the berries sit to finish drying completely.
Once the strawberries are dry, use a small knife to carefully cut around and remove the hull from the top of each of the berries.
Finally, line a glass storage bowl with another paper towel and place the strawberries inside. Cover the top of the bowl with Press N’ Seal food wrap and store in the fridge until you’re ready to use them. The paper towels work to absorb any moisture the berries may release which greatly helps keep them from going bad too soon. Using cellophane wrap instead of an airtight lid is also vital to making sure the strawberries stay fresh for several days. These pre- hulled strawberries will stay fresh for 11 days if properly stored.
