Washing strawberries in champagne

I was talking to a friend of mine about a favoirte pastry chef and referred him to her blog and some articles by her.

Anyway, I came accross this which I thought was interesting and will try in strawberry season ...

"When strawberries are perfect one need not interfere much. Stephen Durfee, now an instructor at the Culinary Institute of America's St. Helena campus, says if you must wash strawberries, do so in Champagne. Strawberries develop spots and mold soon after they've come into contact with water"

Anyway, thought I would pass along before I forgot about it.

Here's the whole wonderful article regarding the subject of strawberries ...
