So I'd just suggest wild flower honey, and raw at that if you can find some.
You have to decide how much strawberry flavour you want and whether its the less familiar fermented taste or as much of the traditional fruit flavour as possible.....
Don't do anything stupid like pureeing the fruit either you just need to freeze it, then thaw it before adding it (and the juice/flavouring that comes out as it defrosts).
To max the flavour the fruit goes in secondary generally or for a fermented taste in primary. You will likely need pectic enzyme too.
Very glad to hear another meadmaker willing to take on the sacred cow of varietal honey! I'm a beekeeper who's very natural about what I do, and varietal honey is (mostly) unnatural.
By the way, why don't you purée?
