for the first time ever I made fruit cakes this christmas. this is one of 12 different recipies that I worked with and the best. I used dried cherries instead of candied cherries and all pecans in all versions and made first batch in early Dec. but my grandkids did not like the boozey taste. had adults picking the crumbs from the plate. second batch used apple juice instead of bourbon and everyone liked but still too crumbly. third batch I halved the fruit and nuts and these were the bomb. none have lasted long enough to hit peak flavor as they start on them out of the oven. do know if I can hide this next batch they will taste even better as the last ones in the jar are the absolute best.
