I'm reminded of this as it's the holidays. There seems to be no more detested edible, even more so than liver, than fruitcake.
Some time ago I came across some at a party. I believe I was in my 20's. Anyway, there it was . . . pressed dried fruit stuffed in some tin . . . I thought it looked pretty. Anyway, after hearing so much about this "don't open it we'll rewrap it and give it to someone else" dried fruit frankenstein, I decided to try it.
I liked it!
I remember eating half of what was there. Again, I'm reminded of this not just because of the holidays, but also because we have a stollen sitting in our kitchen.
I'll take a fruitcake, any day, over a stollen. I think they take a used football, pour icing on it, and call it stollen. Yuk. I don't get it.
So, I ask you . . . have you ever actually tried fruitcake? Do you, like me, like it?
