    The strange quark dude. You said so yourself, without a strange quark which has strangeness +1 the kaon isn't strange, and if a kaon ain't strange it's not a kaon

    my book goes on about the kaons decaying into pions and sigma into pions and protons, is that something that makes them strange?

    They have strange quarks, that's why they have strangeness. fatone already said.

    I'm assuming you're talking about kaons decaying and the stuff out the other side?

    in which case if the interaction is a weak one then strangeness will not be conserved so the products will not be strange and have strange quarks, however in the strong interaction for example it is conserved.
