Author Notes: When I first had strawberries like this, it was just with sour cream and brown sugar, and the strawberries weren't macerated. And that's a wonderful way to serve them when they're fresh. But I usually found myself wanting to keep strawberries on hand for two or three days, and that meant macerating, so I altered the recipe to accommodate that. I keep strawberries in my refrigerator throughout the season, and make creme fraiche (which is not truly creme fraiche, but close enough) about twice a week, and I often have this for breakfast as well as dessert.Kayb
