Shopping and Storage Tips

The glaze for strawberries comes in a container and can be found in the produce section (near the strawberries) in most supermarkets. I used a brand called Marie’s Glaze for Strawberries but there are other brands. Store leftover glaze in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Ready baked dessert shells or called shortcake shells can usually be found in the produce section this time of year, usually displayed with fresh strawberries. They might also be in the bakery aisle. Most are packed 6 to 8 shells to a package. I used a brand called Safeway Kitchens dessert shells. Store leftover shells in the refrigerator or freeze.
