    • Perfect Sliced Strawberries

      Slicing strawberries for cakes, pies or other desserts can seem like a tedious chore that leaves your fingers stained pink. Here's a simple tip using a common kitchen gadget . . .
      Cut the stem off the strawberries first, place them in the egg slicer, gently press down. This does not work on strawberries that have been refrigerated, under-ripe, or frozen, as it will break your egg slicer.

      This works best on ripe berries that are room temperature.

      To Dice strawberries easily, slice them in one direction (see above) pick up the entire strawberry, rotate it 180 degrees and slice it again. Voila- easy diced strawberries!
