Stuffed strawberries... - Page 9

post #121 of 153
Hum, just read this thread and In-Business or Out-of Business I don't think Stuffed Strawberries are anything that you can retire on. A local Chocolate shoppe is extremely busy during Valentines with Strawberries and they aid in his daily sales but he can't survive on berries alone the rest of the year.

Thanks to all of you for posting your recipe for these, I think they are really a kicked up berry and I'm going to try them. thumbs_up.gif

Cookie4... I agree that berries probably couldn't sustain a business all alone. However, I did see that she had a storefront that I believe offered lots of choices and at the website there were other things. I believe she did wedding favors among them.

Thank you StephW for showing us that your stuffed strawberries look much much better than those the woman made in the video.

It didn't look like she stuffed them at all. Not sure why she even cut a wedge out of the strawberry. She just took a handful of the cheescake and mashed it around the bottom of the cheese cake. The strawberries no longer had their "strawberry" shape! The second set of strawberries she pulled out to decorate definately were not anything like the first set. They didn't look "stuffed" at all. The wedding dress one was terrible! I have seen so many beautiful bride strawberries here on CC. Much prettier than the ones in the video.

The video didn't clear anything up for me. StephW, your explanation was perfect!!!!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Awwww thanks Amy! That is so kind of you.

Maybe I will take some step-by-step pics the next time I do some berries and if anyone is interested in seeing them I can post them or email them.
It will just be my little version - because I am sure everyone has their own way of doing it... but it is working for me so far.

This thread is so interesting! I'd be pretty ticked if I could no longer make stuffed strawberries because some lady makes them now. The recipes on this thread seem so yummy too! I can't wait to try them.

I knew the website was gone. Didn't know if her store was closed or not though. Thedessertdiva had been looking into this and was uncertain. I wonder what her prices were like on her other products.

I totally agree. She stuffed the berries with all kinds of things. They looked pretty darn good!

Hi all, I usually just lurk around and read everything that you all post for ideas and such. I have read all the posts on this topic and I wanted to show you all what I found. For those of you that thought maybe this thread had closed down Eminger's Berries, rest assured...

Eminger Berries files for bankruptcy

Friday, July 6, 2007
BANGOR - Eminger Berries, the Auburn-based gourmet food business that won a spot on the Food Network and Paula Deen's show, has filed for bankruptcy.

Despite the national exposure, the two-year-old business closed last month. Bankruptcy documents seeking Chapter 7 protection were filed June 20.

In them, Eminger Berries shows assets of $124,974, and liabilities of $229,537. Among the liabilities are unpaid bills to FedEx ($26,815); UPS ($12,003) and credit cards totaling almost $53,000. Dozens of other creditors are listed, including a $65 unpaid traffic ticket to Auburn police.

The documents also list no income from Eminger Berries for 2007; $27,000 in 2006; and an $8,000 loss in 2005.

The business sold specialty, gourmet stuffed strawberries from the former Black Watch restaurant, before moving to its own location on Grove Street in Auburn.

Susan Eminger, a Johnson & Wales culinary school graduate, was an executive chef in Denver, where she worked with traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries. At her husband's suggestion, she experimented with stuffing the berries with cheesecake, a process she patented.

She opened her business in April 2005, working primarily with online orders from her Vernon Street home.

The bankruptcy filing indicates she and her husband and two small children are relocating to Texas. Calls left for her attorney, Richard O'Brien, were not immediately returned. A meeting of creditors has been scheduled for 11 a.m. on July 16 at the Ramada Inn.

I tried to read quickly through all the pages on this thread. Somewhere here on CC someone had a brilliant idea for stuffing strawberries. She took a skewer and made a small hole in the side of the strawberry. Next she took cheesecake and put it in a decorator bag with a round tip. Then you pipe the cheesecake into a syringe (without a needle...just the plastic nub). Now you can inject the cheesecake into the strawberries. I have made them a couple of times this way and it is really easy. It leaves a small hole in the side of the strawberry which is very quickly covered when dipped in chocolate. Wish I could credit the very smart lady who thought of this idea...she deserves it!
