In a bowl combine buttermilk and egg. Add the buttermilk mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until combined. Spoon dough into prepared jars, filing about one-third full. Cover jars tightly with greased foil. Place jars into a 6-quart oval slow cooker. Pour 1 cup water around jars. Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in centers of shortcakes comes out clean. Remove from slow cooker; cool, uncovered, on a wire rack. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine strawberries, 3 tablespoons sugar, and the rum. Crush some of the strawberries. Stir in mint and lime zest. Cover and chill up to 2 hours. In a bowl beat whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of sugar until soft peaks form. Top shortcakes with strawberry mixture and sweetened whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional lime zest and/or small mint sprigs. *Tip: To make sour milk, pour 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice into a 1-cup glass measure. Add milk to make 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.
