Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

The Easiest Way to Remove Stems From Strawberries

how to remove stems from strawberries

It’s summer and that means strawberry season is in full swing!  If you’re kids are like mine, they love to dig into the strawberries.  But it’s always annoying to cut off the little green stems.  So I figured out this little trick and now they are able to de-stem their own strawberries!

Here’s what you do…

1.  Get some of these frozen drink straws.  Plastic straws will also work, but they aren’t quite as sturdy so they may not work as well.


2.  Get your washed strawberry and place the straw at the bottom (opposite end of the stem).


3.  Firmly push the straw through the berry until it pops the top off.

4.  There you have it!  A perfectly stemmed strawberry.

P.S.  I couldn’t find the metal straws in stores so I ordered mine on Amazon.  If you’re interested in purchasing some here is the link:
