Did you come up with this? Because if you did, you are very wise and helpful!

I saw someone on the interwebs doing some thing similar....Tried it on strawberries with my daughter and was amazed it worked..... I cannot take full credit..... Have you seen the guy that makes the little paper ketchup cups literally hold 2x's more ketchup? There are some amazing hacks out there!

Some folks make herbal tea out of fresh or dried leaves, including the calyx leaves, but never use decaying leaves---poisonous!

Thanks guys :)

--you can eat the core, just not the calyx. No fruit wasted.

My daughter won't eat "The Grass" so we used to chop the top off.... At home I have an antique strawberry corner, but out and about we do this :)
