I have one of those separators. They work pretty well but I think I will try the water bottle method next time.

For some reason it grosses me out, though.
Hint: Don't use the same bottle that you have been spitting your tobacco juice into!

The recipe I have needs the fruit to soak up some booze for a few days, then make the batter and bake right away. What takes a while is brushing more booze on over a couple of weeks, then a few weeks of aging before it's at its best.


It's on the way to ya, feel free to post on here if you want, Winds.

I actually might give it a try. What the heck. I have plenty of time on my hands.

As well she should.

One year I wanted to buy a really good "real" fruitcake and couldn't justify the cost. It was something like $35.00.

Absolutely! And to buy all the candied fruit a recipe calls for is just as expensive. Maybe I'll just wait until the one that keeps circulating comes to me. I'll soak it in rum for a day or so and eat it.
