So you might be thinking is a dumb tutorial. Clearly, you just put them under the faucet and wash them like anything else. Well, according to a lot of chefs, that’s a mistake as it’ll bruise the strawberries. Here’s how they recommend you do it in order to keep the best color, flavor, and texture of your strawberries.
1. Put cold water in a large bowl.
2. An hour or so before you plan to use the strawberries, put them in the cold water bowl.
3. Gently swish them around with your hands to get all the dirt to fall to the bottom.
4. Remove and set on a paper towel.
