Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries everywhere! Everyone gets excited about springtime strawberry recipes, and rightly so. They are delicious! If you’ve perused these recipes long enough, you can probably identify one of the first commonsense steps in virtually everyone of them: wash and hull the strawberries. Of course you will wash the dirt and debris off of the freshly picked or purchased strawberries. Then, since few people like to nibble the greenery of the calyx atop the berry, they deftly hull those babies.
So, to what use can you put those excess and normally unused strawberry tops? Well, you can compost them or feed them to your pet hamster, of course. But, you can also make a delightful strawberry water infusion. Adding cucumbers to a cup of cold water is a favorite way to add a bit of freshness to otherwise bland water. Strawberry hulls can be used for the same purpose!
