EDITED TO ADD:
Moe grew up in Windsor Ontario where strawberries were always in season in May. It was a tradition to always have something with strawberries on his birthday.
I've carried on that tradition for 48 years.
Thankfully strawberries have just come into season this week on Vancouver Island and I was able to get local strawberries. I vary the dessert every year, and this year went back to an old favourite.
