Wait! Wait!

Brandied strawberries? You would not happen to have more information about that would you? Like are they good for canning? A recipe, perhaps?

I would have to dig... but typically you would warm 1 C brandy and 2 C sugar till sugar is dissolved. Then add berries - about 1 quart. Place in a jar (in fridge) and invert every few days. They are ready to eat in a 3 weeks. Fabulous on ice cream or pound cake. My mom used to do this but didn't refrigerate - I'm still alive so I guess it was OK....

When I make it with plums, I put the fruit in a quart jar, add a cup of sugar, and then fill it to the top with vodka. Turn upside down and back every day until the sugar dissolves, then let it sit. I've never refrigerated it.
The interesting thing about drying them is that one could turn them into a powder (if dried completely) and use that way, sprinkle on top of ice cream, use in vinaigrette, etc...

Cool on the beverage idea. And the powdered idea is nifty. Have you made the powder?

JanetH, it sounds like a worthy endeavor.

not with strawberries, but with dried tomatoes. I imagine it could be similar.
