Now I'm home. I pitted and sliced some berries for dehydrating and some for the freezer. I'm telling the family to eat all they can manage now while the berries are at their best. I'm also going to can some peaches that I bought at the market.
Here are my Strawberry Tips for 2011:
- Wear strawberry-juice-colored clothing.
- Use a paper clip to pit the strawberries. Unbend the center bend, so you have the two bent ends to work with.
- Slice ripe strawberries with an egg slicer.
Quote from Lil Miss A, helping to shuck the skins off the peaches: "Why does the skin always stick in the butt crack?"
