Another recipe from my collection which I received from my husband’s mom, Corinne Brown James. She always had a huge strawberry patch, and so fixed many different dishes with strawberries as a key ingredient. As with many women, and especially farm wives, Corinne would listen to the radio talk shows while she worked around the house, and she would copy down recipes that were shared over the radio programs. It’s possible that this is one of those recipes.
