Macerating is a technique by which an ingredient, usually fresh or dried fruit, is soaked in a flavored liquid for the purpose of softening and infusing with flavor for a period of time, anywhere from a few minutes to overnight.

Macerating can also mean adding sugar to fruits to draw out and release their natural liquids, such as with berries.
