Today’s tutorial is a simple how-to lesson on cutting strawberries into hearts.

Because….


VALENTINE’S DAY IS COMING!

And what kind of person would you be if you didn’t know how to cut strawberries into hearts?  Right?

Well, okay, you’d be just fine, but it really is a cute little touch of pizzazz when preparing something for your honey.

Remember last year when I made these simple Valentine Heart Brownies?

I cut my strawberries for those just like I am teaching you today.

Cut off the end of the strawberry as close to the leaves as you can.

Next, cut a tiny “V” in the end of the strawberry like follows…

Then turn the strawberry so the point is in the air and the flat end you cut across with the “V” is on the cutting board. Slice straight down through the strawberry to the cutting board making thin slices.

And you’ll be left with nice little strawberry “hearts”!

    Fun, Katie! My husband and I are coordinating the youth group Valentine's Dinner next week and we had planned sugar-lace dusted brownies with a raspberry garnish for desert. I think strawberry hearts are a much better fit for the garnish - thanks for the idea!
