Seedlesss strawberries

HA! I put that title just to make you read it!
Are you trying to figure out what seedless strawberries are?

So, I can't have seeds - strawberries are out, but I peeled some today. I can eat watermelon, cantaloupe, peeled nectarines, peeled plums, the inside of a strawberry must be similar to one of those.

So what's the verdict? Can I eat peeled strawberries??

strawberries only have those tiny weeny little seeds - would they really cause you problems, MBH?

if so, i would say yeah, go for it with the peeling. but watch out for rashes... i'm allergic to strawberries and i know a few folk with immune issues who are too...

it must be pretty difficult to peel strawberries. but i think you should have called them "naked strawberries," not "seedless strawberries." more interesting that way...

Did you REALLY wwrite that???


I tried two of them. The strawberries, not katiesue's cookies. I really just cut them close to the outside, not with a peeler. The low residue diet says no strawberries, I just assume it's because of the seeds. Then again, pears are a no eat food on that diet. High fiber I guess. Would the seeds cause problems? No idea, but they aren't really digestable, so I'll peel them. I don't even like strawberries that much unless they're from a U-pick farm. Not this time of year from the grocery store.

I bet with diverticulitis you aren't to have strawberries, things like poppyseeds, etc...the smaller is actually more dangerous.

No diverticu-whatever that is called. Just low residue diet, which says no seeds. I count those as seeds for sure, no matter how small. I'd kill for a lemon poppyseed muffin.
Are you SURE you can eat strawberries Pen? You're not feeling the greatest lately, and you eat a lot of them from your garden, right? No meds seem to work on you, how do you know you're tolerating them?

(Not trying to sound snotty, if that came off that way.)

Yep you just cook a bunch of them before you mix in the chocolate chips. They are REALLY good.

Jed - can we make that cranberries instead of strawberries.. i get a nasty rash with strawberries - not that i'm trying to tell my stalker how to stalk or anything... hehe

see my problem there is i dont really eat fruit or vegetables, and i dont think cheeseburgers in navels have the same sex appeal.

this stalking is off to a bad start so far, will try come up with something better when my head clears up

Aww CRAP! Did you ever burn yourself while making naked chocolate chip cookies naked?
You do NOT want to know where that burn is....

Who told me to try that anyways? Don't you know I'm unstable??
Ow, it burns....

Oo~ An ice pack! Thanks Drew!

totally agree about the cheeseburgers being a no-no, Jed.

i think we (sorry, you - being my stalker) should collect Mbh's discarded chocolate chips, melt them down into chocolate sauce.... etc...



aww and ouch Mbh - sounds painful! hope they grow back soon

If you put the strawberries in a blender with some rum, then the seeds don't count.
Rum makes everything better

Blend strawberries up with water and a banana. You wont notice the seeds, just smooth deliciousness. And no, it wont bother you. Just maybe stay away from blackberries because they are more seedy...and arent as good to eat in a smoothie anyway.

I just got the book "What to eat with IBD" and I was thinking 'oh crap not strawberries" when I got the part about seeds.

I think if one is patient enough, you can pick the seeds off....

I am using frozen strawberries and cutting off the seeds with a knife, Like peeling an apple.
