My husband and I love strawberries but we don’t eat them much. I’ve never liked to “prepare” them for eating. There’s the washing and the hulling and then the tedious slicing. I was thumbing through one of the many mail order catalogs I receive and happened to come across this little strawberry slicer.
It looked like something I would definitely use and like. So I ordered one. It was well worth the few bucks I spent on it and sliced my strawberries cleanly and easily and quicker than I could do it by hand with a knife. It was perfect! Making simple little strawberry shortcakes is so much easier now. Actually, someone told me I could have probably used an egg slicer with good results also, but I’m happy with this little gadget.
I thought strawberry shortcakes would be good to have after dinner this week. I bought 2 lbs. of strawberries.
I washed them and drained them.
Then I hulled them and sliced them. This took less than 10 minutes with my new little gadget.
I always add a little Splenda to the berries
Sprinkle a little Splenda on, stir and let them sit a few minutes.
Take some shortcake shells
Squirt a little whip cream on a shell, pour on some sliced strawberries, and top with more whip cream and berries. You have a simple, quick, delicious strawberry treat! Enjoy!
I liked this little strawberry slicer gadget so much that I have ordered two more – one for my mother-in-law and one for my oldest son who both love to eat strawberries. I hope they like it as much as I do.
