Strawberries are almost in season in Michigan and you will probably find a few this Saturday! Here’s a recipe to get you started for the new crop!

For the adults:

Strawberries in Red Wine

For each serving, spoon into large wine glass:

3/4 cup quartered fresh Michigan strawberries
1-1/2 tsp. Michigan sugar
1 tsp. orange-flavored liqueur
1/2 tsp. Cognac

Fill each glass with your favorite Michigan red wine to cover the berries. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

For the kids:

Strawberry Bread

2 cups fresh Michigan strawberries
3 cups Michigan flour
2 cups Michigan sugar
1 tbl. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1-1/4 cups chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°. Butter and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Slice strawberries and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture.

Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in large bowl; mix well. Blend oil and eggs into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened. Stir in pecans. Divide batter into pans. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until tester inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaves out, and cool completely.
