handy-dandy strawberry tongs


Friday, May 30, 2014

After my post about strawberries yesterday, I was commenting to a couple SparkFriends about the tongs I use to hull my beloved strawberries.



I think they were designed for olives. But with the little teeth at the end they work beautifully for hulling strawberries. I pick off the leaves with my fingers, then stab the tongs in, squeeze, twist and pull. Presto.

I got them years ago at a store called The Alley. Amazon had them for a while but I could not find them yesterday when I searched for them there.

Edited to add:

Amazon does have them! amzn.com/B000MYFIEW

    What a great idea! The only other tool I've ever seen for that was at a specialty kitchen gadget store: http://www.chefn.com/Product.aspx?i

Of course, long fingernails work too (although it does make a nail brush an absolute necessity)!

    those are awesome! And probably much less waste than I have trying to eat around the leaves and stem!
