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.

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.
