Fruity tip of the day

Here's a quick tip for your summery fruit tarts and pies: When cutting a strawberry, use a paring knife (they're small and easy to maneuver). Insert the tip around the top of the strawberry, cutting just the stem and leaves. Flip the strawberry on it's top, where it's now smooth, and slice into even slices. Usually about 1/2 inch will do. You usually want to have even slices if you're cooking the fruit, so it cooks evenly. However when using fruit uncooked, even slices look more professional and appealing. Happy baking!
