Strawberry Bread

    One of our local farmers has fields of strawberries. During the early summer they are full of sweet goodness. The nice lady that has these strawberry fields also supplies people that come to pick the berries tips on how to take care of them and some recipes to try out. One of the recipes that caught my eye was a banana-style quick bread made with strawberries. It sounded just too good not to share.
