I macerate the strawberries in Cointreau with a strip of vanilla bean.

Ok, we've been putting sugar on them, but just not letting them sit for a couple of hrs. This we'll try.
This is what we do. We slice the berries and cover them with sugar, put them into an airtight container and let them sit--sometimes as long as overnight.Originally posted by misskitty5077

We just use sugar. Let them sit a few hours and they will make their own syrup. You can add vanilla or liquors if you like.
Works well with peaches and berries too. Any fruit that has enough juice to wet the sugar will make its own syrup. If it is a drier fruit, add some liquor.
