Sharon's Jamaican Fruit Cake
I tried this recipe Dec' 2010 and shared w/ friends of mine who are Jamaican (I am not, but my stepparent is). I thought it came out well. My friend's father from Jamaican agreed it was pretty good, but he said not to add orange peel (Jamaican fruit cake doesn't use orange peel, but I buy the mixed candied fruit to save money). He also said to use Jamaican rum. I am not a rum drinker so I am can't really appreciating the differences in taste between, Jamaican, Virgin Island or Puerto Rican rum. I thought it was pretty good though I am not a big fruit cake lover. I do it in memory of my mother (she mad a fantastic fruitcake). I am trying it again this year in about a week. My stepfather who is Jamaican, also said I should have started soaking the fruit no later than the summer. I'll try to remember that next summer but really, who is thinking about fruit cake in July:)
