 This is one of my bravest attempts yet at recipe modification :-)
 ....and my 5yo liked it enough to eat for a few days!  The original
 was a flyer from Land's Sake, an organic farm in Weston, Mass. but
 it has been vastly modified.  If anyone tries it, can you give me
 some feedback on the baking time please?
 Fresh Strawberry Bread
 1 pint (2 cups) fresh ripe strawberries
 1 c all purpose flour  
 3/4c. whole wheat pastry flour
 1 tsp baking soda 
 scant 1 tsp salt
 1/4 tsp baking powder
 1/2 cup sugar
 1 large ripe banana (about 2/3 cup mashed maybe.. I'll measure next time)
 2 egg whites, lightly beaten til frothy
 1/3 cup water
 Crush half the strawberries in a saucepan, and simmer over medium heat
 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Slice rest of strawberries and mix w/the
 cooked berries.  Chill.
 Preheat oven to 350F.
 In a medium bowl combine all dry ingredients except the sugar.
 In a larger bowl mash the banana.  Mix the sugar in.  Mix the egg whites
 and water in.
 Add flour mixture to wet ingredients.  Blend well.  Add strawberries
 and pour into a nonstick bread pan (I used 2 small pans, next time
 I would use one 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 pan).
 Bake for 40 -) 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
 (time is inexact because I used 2 small pans this time & it baked in about
 25 minutes.  I think it would be better in a larger pan, but I don't know
 how long it will take... start testing after 40 minutes!).
 Cool for about 10 minutes and gently pry off the sides and turn out onto 
 racks to cool.
