Get a good strong straw. Not
a paper drinking straw. MacDonalds have good ones to use.
Find the centre of the
pointed end, insert the straw and push. Make sure the straw doesn’t bend.
BINGO…. The straw pops right
through, nice clean hole, and the root and hull usually come out together. If the straw gets clogged, just blow.
