Whenever Wimbledon is on, you always know that berry season is here! I love how shops lay out all the berries and cream next to each another. I always get at least two packets of various berries at a time. We love eating it with honey or use it as ice cream topping.
Last week, OXO sent me two lovely gadgets to try out. This is my video showing how easy it is to use the strawberry huller and how the berry bowl looks.
I can’t tell you how much I love OXO gadgets! They are always so durable and useful. We had tried out their steel pop containers which are exclusive to John Lewis, stainless steel bowls and potato ricer, turner and batter dispenser.
This strawberry huller is brilliant! I always used to try pulling at the stalk of the strawberry and then having to dig it out using knife because it snapped. This huller is so easy to use for big or medium strawberries. Smaller strawberry may end up losing too much flesh. It is easy to twist out and give a good clean too. But be careful, as it is sharp.
The berry bowl is so handy too. It is great for washing and storing berries but you can use it for more than that. We have a small family and this bowl is a great size for me to strain the vegetable too. I can always put the lid on and store whatever is not used for the next day. I love the quality and finish of this set! It is amazing!
We were also sent two packets of strawberries from Berry World. I would highly recommend them! They are big and delicious! I need to look out for them!
I made three different recipes. They are not based on anyone’s recipes but it is more me making it up as I went along. The first one is a strawberry banana milkshake. The ingredients were simply a handful of strawberries; two ripe bananas; milk and ice cream, all blended together!
Next are these chocolate strawberries. Simply, dip the strawberry into melted chocolate and place them aside. I used my oven tray to hold on to my strawberries. Then if you prefer, add some white chocolate with it too once the first coating of chocolate has dried.
Lastly, I made this strawberry meringue. Recently, I went to a Sarson event where we made beautiful meringue. Click here to read the recipe. To make a small meringue, use a piping.
