Test Kitchen Outtakes: Berries and Pie and the Fourth of July

Okay, I must comment on the video about hulling strawberries. If you have unripe ones, with the hard white core in the center as shown, and you are making strawberry jam, do not remove the white part. That unripe portion has an extra dose of pectin in it, which helps the jam set better. This is a time when a single purpose tool -- the little metal huller that pinches off the stem -- is a good idea. (They cost a few dollars and take up almost no room, so I make an exception for them.) ;o)

Thank you for that advice, AntoniaJames. I'm about to make my first ever batch of strawberry jam and I wouldn't have known that.
