Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re like me then you love to indulge in decadent gourmet strawberries. A couple of years ago my husband bought a dozen or so from Shari’s Berries. If you’ve ever ordered from them, then you know how juicy and super-sweet they are.
I wanted to try making my own chocolate-covered strawberries at home, but I just could not figure out how to make them juicy like the one’s my hubby got me. I don’t know about you, but when I purchase fresh strawberries they are always a little tart. And after tasting gourmet strawberries, there is simply no going back.
I saw many tutorials for ways to sweeten your berries, but none were doing the trick. I decided to experiment a bit, and after a couple fails I came up with this easy method. If you have a sweet tooth, 24 hours to spare, and you want to impress your Valentine, then this tutorial is for you.
