1) When making strawberry shortcake, have you ever added anything like syrup or strawberry juice to those berries?

2) Has strawberry rhubarb pie an equal? (Man, I sincerely think not.)

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.

Ok, we've been putting sugar on them, but just not letting them sit for a couple of hrs. This we'll try.

As for the Cointreau - now, that sounds simply sinful. But you know I'm gonna give that a try as well.:)

Thanks to you both.

Oh, one more thing... for the whipped cream; I go whole hog and do real cream. ;)

Yup, that's the secret!

Also, must be real sugar. For awhile, we were kind of anti-sugar and used Splenda for everything, and I let our supply of sugar run out. Then we tried to make some strawberries and short cake one day... doesn't work without sugar; it doesn't make its own syrup.

I've since started keeping a very small amount of sugar on hand for "cooking". (Splenda won't raise yeast pizza dough, either, DAMHIK :rollsmiley: ) I buy the smallest bag of pure cane sugar (must say cane on the label or else you end up with sugar beet sugar -- yes, I can tell the difference!).

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.
