Macerated Strawberries

This is a good way to perk up less than stellar berries or to make good berries even better. It gives them a nice extra sweet punch and draws out the juices to make a delicious syrup. These refrigerate well and go great with biscuits, yogurt, granola, or even ice cream 🙂

Macerated Strawberries
Makes 2 quarts

4 lbs whole strawberries
1 cup white granulated sugar

Cut off the stems and any mushy or white bits of the berries. Slice and add to a large bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the top and stir to combine. Let sit for at least half an hour, stirring occasionally.

  2. My grandma used to always have these at Easter, the only time of year I put sugar on my strawberries for some reason! This post reminded me of her–thanks:)
