So I just made an amazing discovery, just in time for Valentines Day! Did you know that if you cut a strawberry in half and maneuver it a little bit, it looks like a heart? It’s an all natural accoutrement, does it get any better than that? It’s perfect for garnishing cocktails or serving as a fruit skewer.
To make your very own strawberry hearts, all you do is cut off the stem of a strawberry like so:
Slice the strawberry in half lengthwise:
And cut out a little piece in the middle to form a heart!
Now that you’ve discovered this, you can do a plethora of things like serve strawberry heart skewers for your Valentine’s Day breakfast. Tie the end of the skewer with a pretty ribbon to finish off the look.
Garnish a glass of bubbly with a strawberry heart like this:
Or make delicious and edible drink stirrers like these!
I mean how freaking cute are these, right? Maybe you guys already knew about the whole strawberry heart shaped thing…I can be a little slow on the uptick as they say 🙂 Off to watch Golden Globes Fashion Police…my fave was Kate Beckinsale and Julianne Moore…how about you??
