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.
