After I made the summer trifle, I had some leftovers to take care of. I had a leftover angel food cake and many strawberries. Now, in this house, we go through a lot of berries but strawberries tend to hang around too long….and then you’re stuck with a box of moldy strawberries. Ick. An easy way to solve this problem is by macerating the strawberries. If you do an internet search, you are likely to find some very involved recipes for macerated strawberries using salt, pepper, wine, and who-knows-what-else. I have found, however, that the only thing that you need sugar.
Step 1: Prep your strawberries. You want them to be close to the same size.
Step 2: Cover the strawberry slices with sugar.
Step 3: Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple hours. Overnight is even better.
Step 4: The sugar and the juices from the strawberries combine to make a delicious sauce to drizzle over the angel food cake. Yum!
