My H says that his grandma used to take over the whole kitchen to make fruit cake. The smell was amazing and the taste was doubly amazing. Unfortunately nobody in his family inherited her recipe, and she is long gone.
i haven't done any holiday baking for years, but i miss it. maybe pulling together a nice drunken fruit cake would be a pleasant little holiday activity. should get on it this week, tho -- needs time to properly cure!
hmm... i bet nigella lawson will have a good recipe for this somewhere... with currants and plump apricots and monticello cherries. oh wow. who's got some wild turkey they wanna throw in? i'll give you a slice...:raisebro:
