Macerated Strawberries

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by KLHquilts

I found this yesterday at, and am very surprised there's nothing like it on Recipezaar (at least, I can't find it). We served this over nonfat yogurt cheese, but it would be equally delicious over just about anything. Cooking time is refrigeration time.

This was amazing! I used a pound of strawberries; maybe that was the same amount as was called for. Anyway, this is to die for! Thanks so much. I never would have come up with this on my own!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash, then hull strawberries. Don't use strawberries that are "bad" -- overripe, underripe, moldy, squashed, resemble Richard Nixon -- if there's a white crown on a strawberry, don't use it.
  2. Set aside 6-8 strawberries, and roughly chop the rest of them. Irregular shapes are good.
  3. Take the 6-8 strawberries that were set aside, chop 'em too, then mash them with a fork so you've got a rough strawberry puree.
  4. Mix the chopped strawberries and the mashed strawberries in a bowl, trying to coat the whole pieces as much as possible.
  5. Add the honey, then the Grand Marnier, to the bowl. Stir gently until it's all coated.
  6. Refrigerate at least two hours, then serve over whatever pleases you.
  7. Note: If you don't want to use liqueur, you can substitute lemon juice and a teaspoon or two of lemon zest.
