Healthy Strawberry Dessert Recipes

Berry, Berry Good

Good Strawberries RecipesStrawberries taste deliciously indulgent fresh off the vine, but they’re even better as part of your favorite dessert. They add a natural sweetness, as well as a healthy dose of nutrients. In fact, just one cup of this superfruit contains more vitamin C than oranges, and plenty of folate and heart-healthy compounds.

Prep Like a Pro

Hulled StrawberriesWhen recipes call for “hulled” strawberries, that means you remove the stem and the white conical core while leaving as much of the fruit intact as possible. A simple way to do it, no special gadgets required:

• Hold the berry by the bottom. In the other hand, grasp a sharp paring knife so that about 1/2 inch of the blade extends past the ends of your thumb (don’t touch the edge).

• Insert the tip of the knife into the top of the berry at a 45 degree angle. Twist the berry and the knife in opposite directions, cutting all the way around the stem.

• Pull out the stem and the core; discard.
