Making a Strawberry Fan
Place firm ripe berries with stem down on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, make cuts, 1/8 in. apart through the berry to within 1/8 in. of the stem.
Use your fingers to gently spread apart the slices to form a fan.
Add further appeal with fresh mint if it's available. After carefully removing the berry leaves with the knife point, replace them with a sprig of mint.
