"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was a big one around the Hinton household when dad retired and took up food drying for a hobby. He was known to come home with 100 pounds of bananas at a time with no advance warning. Most went into the dryer, but some ended up in banana bread. This recipe doesn't call for nuts, but mom normally included chopped walnuts.
