Tips on washing strawberries:
- Always wash strawberries well because they are one of the top ten pesticide-ridden fruits. But don't soak them as they easily absorb water, which will dilute their sweetness and flavor.
- To wash, remove the leaves without breaking into the strawberries. Then put them in a colander or sieve; run water over them; take them in your hands and gently rub each one with your fingers to make sure you clean it.
- After the strawberries are completely washed, place them on a paper towel and dry them off or let them air dry for several minutes.
- Now, hull them and start preparing them for the recipe.
