Notes

HINT
Choose the best strawberries you can find. They should have no green on them (except, of course, for the green leaf tops) and should show no signs of going soft. Farm fresh strawberries have the best flavor.
Place the strawberries in a colander and wash them with warm, running water. Pat them with a paper towel or flour sack dish cloth until they are dry. Hull the strawberries with a huller, or with a paring knife. Most berries will then have a little hole in the top, but if this isn’t the case, carefully carve one out with the paring knife.
If you use whole graham crackers, pulse them in a food processor until they turn to fine crumbs, or place them in a large seal-able bag, a little at a time, and roll over them with a rolling pin until you obtain fine crumbs. Pour the crumbs into a bowl.
The strawberries taste best if eaten shortly after they are made, but you may store them in the refrigerator, in a covered dish, until ready to serve.
