We’ve all heard them – the infamous fruitcake jokes! “Why is history like a fruit cake? Because it is full of dates!” “Why do fruitcakes make ideal gifts? Because the Postal Service has been unable to find a way to damage them”. And then there is everybody’s favorite fruit cake recipe: Nuts, dried fruit, eggs, brown sugar, salt and a couple bottles of bourbon – for the chef.
In spite of the jokes fruit cake, if properly made, is delicious. Good fruitcake calls for top quality fruits and nuts with just enough buttery-rich batter to hold them together, careful baking and several weeks to “mellow” wrapped in cloth soaked with fine liquors. It is a slow process but one that pays off with rich, colorful, buttery fruitcakes that are as good in mid-summer as they are for Christmas. Enjoy fruitcakes of exceptional quality.
