  When I was living in Philadelphia in the early 90s, there was a shop on 
  Columbus Drive that was owned and operated by the Amish.
  They made a yeast based strawberry bread along with other fruit varieties 
  that was out of this world.

  Would you by any chance be able to find something similar?  I have searched 
  with no luck, everything seems to be quick bread type, or dressed up with 
  jam.  The one I am actually remembering had fresh berries in it.

  Many Thanks

Hello Marian,

The below recipe is the only yeast strawberry bread recipe that I could find. It uses both fresh and frozen berries and is a bread machine recipe. All the rest were quick breads.


  Strawberry Bread

  1 pk Yeast
  3 c Bread flour
  1 tb Gluten
  1 tb Sugar
  1 ts Salt
  1/8 ts Baking soda
  1 pk Frozen strawberries*
  1 ts Vanilla
  1/4 c Whipping cream
  1/4 c Warm water
  1 c Fresh strawberries

  * in syrup defrosted 

  Add all ingredients except FRESH berries into pan. Select white bread 
  and push start. Add fresh berries at the beeps.

  When I was a kid I lived in pennsylvania.
  We used to drink Jack Frost cherry pop.It came in a small bottle I think 
  8 or 10 oz.
  Also there was a root beer called Frostie.
  Thank you, 

Hi Lin,

I had no luck at all with Jack Frost Cherry Soda or Pop, but Frostie Root Beer is still very much around. You can buy it online at:

Soda Pop Stop
