Macerated Strawberries....sounds naughty, right? They kind of are, and that's because of the booze that's involved. Albertson's had strawberries for cheap this weekend, so I bought a couple pounds. Then I macerated them for a few hours.
After dinner, I poured the berries over some low fat Angel Food cake....heavenly! I was going to take pics, but the food disappeared way too fast!
I'd like to send a shout out to my girl, Martha Stewart, for hooking me up with the recipe:
2 pints fresh strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Grand Marnier or other Orange Liqueur
- Hull strawberries, cut in half, and place in a bowl.
- Add sugar and liqueur, and mix until well combined.
- Stir with a fork, crushing some of the strawberries to release the juices.
- Refrigerate until strawberries are very soft & juicy,
Ready in about 4 hours.
