  2. Next, hold the strawberry in one hand. Then, take your plastic straw and run it through the bottom of the strawberry all the way out the top. The core of the strawberry will come out with the plastic straw!
  3. That’s it! Now you’ve successfully removed the stem without having to cut away so much of the delicious strawberry meat!
