Re: How Can I Soften Hard Supermarket Strawberries?

I have found that vigorous chewing will soften them. It doesn't improve the flavor, but they will soften.

The nature of the fruit requires them to be picked green in order to reach the store shelf before they rot. The further they have to travel to market, the greener they have to be picked.

cut them in half, add a splash of port, and put them to one side for half an hour.

Egyptian strawberries, the best way I know to soften them is get a Camel to tread on them.
