What are macerated strawberries? Macerated strawberries means to soften or sweeten the strawberries with liquid. It’s a perfect way to sweeten up strawberries that aren’t as ripe as you would like them. You can macerate fruit in a liquid such as balsamic vinegar or even liquor. Personally I like to macerate and break down my fruit in sugar. The mixture is then set aside to soften and release it’s own juices.
How To Store Strawberry Shortcake Donuts?
I would recommend storing all ingredients separately and assembling them right before you are ready to serve. Strawberries and whipped cream can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
