Macerate Berries

Macerating berries is super easy and turns fresh berries into a luscious, sauce-like concoction that’s perfect for serving over ice cream, with shortcake or baked into pastry.   The sugar draws moisture out of the berries and then dissolves into a flavor-packed syrup, coating the softened berries and enhancing their flavor.  Your friends will think you went to culinary school, but this technique takes only three ingredients and two minutes of prep time.  Learn the technique with Jessica Antonaccio from B&B Ristorante and Otto Las Vegas.
