To test strawberry shortcake recipes, we had to trim a lot of strawberries. Originally, I had hoped to be able to tell you that a strawberry huller is a useful gadget, but as it turns out, this is one gizmo you can live without. We tried three different hullers, and although they did remove the hulls, they were so stiff and awkward to operate that we could see carpal tunnel syndrome looming in our futures if we kept working with them. Fact is, a paring knife, a tomato corer (also known as a tomato witch or shark), and even a sturdy metal 1/2 teaspoon all do a fine job of hulling strawberries, and you probably already own at least one of them.
