I have found the easiest way to remove the stems on strawberries is to use a sturdy straw, (like one from McDonalds).
This is a quick an easy way to clean strawberries.
♥ Wash your berries, use a sturdy straw.
♥ Center the straw into the bottom of the berry and push through slowly out the top of the strawberry
