I'm sure lots of folks are preparing for their holiday favorites. I just heard from my dear friend Peggy in Nova Scotia, and she's getting ready to make a couple of fruitcakes! If you've never made one, you won't appreciate the hard work that goes into them, especially the mixing of the fruit!!! It's hard work. One person who does know this is Nannie Mac. She mixes up a few batches every year and if you are lucky and Uncle David isn't around, you may get a taste! Love ya David, despite this fault!
If on the other hand you don't have recipes that have been passed from grandmother to mother to you, here's some recipes that hold much promise! leave it to TipNut to have the best hints & tips for a good life!
