STRAWBERRIES - Cleaning

Strawberries are frequently highly infested with tiny insects although they may appear to be insect-free. The trained eye can find these on the outside of the berries and particularly on and under the green cap.

1. Either:

1. Cut off the green leaf with about 1mm of the fruit, or
2. Carefully twist off the green, Donít pull, otherwise youíll make a hole into which the tiny insects can fall.

2. Cut off any mushy parts as well as deep folds.

3. If in the process of doing this youíve reached the cavity, cut the strawberry in half and check internally for worms.
4. Rinse the strawberries in very soapy water, gently rubbing under the green leaves.
5. Rinse the soap off under running water.
