Strawberry Walnut Bread

Strawberry Walnut Bread

Alright you guys all know by now that I am on a huge, life altering journey into the world of seasonal, local and freshly grown produce. So it would just be natural for me to compete in a challenge based around using goods that were available on a seasonal basis! Except I have almost run out of time. This is another challenge that I am getting in just under the wire!!!

This event is hosted by Ben from What's Cooking? The requirements are that you have to cook something that is in season in the area of the world that you are from. Well, as luck would have it, on Wednesday I was at our local U-Pick and they happened to be running a special on strawberries. For each quart that I bought I got a pint free! How could I refuse that...but what would I do with the extra strawberries?

When in doubt make bread!!!

I made Strawberry Walnut Bread out of my bounty! Was it ever good. I can't wait until next Wednesday to see if I have extra strawberries again!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

You are lucky to find u-pick strawberries this time of year. We don't get them until June here!

The bread sounds wonderful.

Hey we have strawberries here too but I've never made bread before, don't know if I would dare to try your recipe!

It surely looks wonderful though :D

Thanks Joy the Baker!

Well Patsyk when you do get the strawberries you will know what to do with them!

Nuria-Try this...It is a nice easy quick bread. Similar to banana bread or pumpkin bread. No yeast!
