This is the absolute best fruitcake ever. It's not for "I hate all fruitcake" people, it's for those who might not like the stuff with candied cherries at the supermarket but appreciate very fine work. I use tons of dried fruits from health food stores and Trader Joe's. I also wrap it for a couple or three weeks in booze-soaked cheesecloth. It gets better over time.
