Strawberries Lenox

This recipe brings back memories.

Memories of a peach-colored tupperware bowl sitting on the bottom shelf in the fridge.
I so wanted to open that lid and inhale all of that wonderful aroma locked up inside.
Man, how I wanted to devour the contents of that bowl.

Mom always made a smaller, separate “virgin” bowl for me.
I felt special.
And these strawberries were always a special treat.

My mother got the recipe from my grandmother, my father’s mother, and I have no idea why it’s called Strawberries Lenox.
All I know is that it’s pretty darn good.
And it passed the family test, too!
I think you’ll like them.

      Dorothy, it is an orange flavored liquor and can be found at a liquor store where the cordials are.
      And it really is blue in color.

      Becca,
      When I was little, my mother would just use the orange juice and sugar without the alcohol and they tasted just as good!
