There are quite a number of recipes that call for Macerated Strawberries or other fruits, and this is how it’s done…

We are planning on freezing some of these delicious berries, making some fabulous freezer jam, berry syrup, eating lots of them straight from the box, and macerating some berries to serve with a drizzle of some good balsamic vinegar, with crème fraîche or whipped cream.

  2. Slice and place in a bowl with a couple teaspoons of sugar, and set them aside. * Note: Almost immediately, you will see a strawberry liqueur form and it is so juicy and sweet, you are tempted to eat them right away. However, by allowing them to sit for a while in the juice, or macerate, the sugar and berries meld together to obtain maximum flavor.
  3. Allow strawberries to sit with sugar, covered in a bowl, for at least 20 min. You may even refrigerate them, if the berries are for later to eat.
