Definition of Macerate

Definition: Maceration

Maceration (pronounced "mass-uh-ray-shun") refers to the process of steeping a food — typically, a fruit such as a berry — in a liquid (such as a liqueur) or sugar in order to infuse it with the liquid's flavor and soften the food. The process of macerating is similar to that of marinating, which involves soaking food in a seasoned, acidic liquid prior to cooking.

When I was little I honestly thought that strawberries always came cut into quarters and covered in sticky sugary strawberry flavored syrup.Nope. My mom was just a big fan of macerating strawberries to within an inch of their berry-lives.Ahh memories...
