Macerated Strawberries


I didn’t think you could make strawberries taste any better than they do fresh out of the garden.

But I was intrigued by the recipe for macerated strawberries in The Batali Brothers Cookbook by Benno and Leo Batali (Mario’s sons).  It was so simple, I just had to try it.

Again I used a mix of my own and other local strawberries. I am lucky to have several farms to choose from on my way home from Philadelphia.

This was delicious.  My husband and I ate the whole bowl in one sitting!

  1. I have always fixed strawberries this way without the salt. They are delicious over shortcake.

Let me know what you think of this post, and if you try the recipe, please let me know how it was and any suggestions you have. Thanks, Andrea
