1. Rinse the strawberries. Remove the stems and slice lengthwise - top to bottom into halves.
2. Place strawberries in a suitable container or containers such as mason jars, add your vodka leaving about 1/4 inch head space.
3. Store in a cool dark location - your refrigerator will suffice - for several weeks. Check on it and give it a shake weekly - not weakly but weekly.
In about 3 months the strawberries reach their peak of perfection. Pour the vodka/brine into a new bottle, it's still good, not only good - it's great, having taken on some the strawberry essence.
The liquored berries can be used for ice cream or dessert toppings or topped themselves with nuts, syrup, sugar and devoured as is. I like them with some confectioners sugar and walnuts.
