Okay, am I the only person in the world who is really happy to get a fruitcake for Christmas? Really?
Or is Polish Christmas chleben from Chris's Aunt Mary Jo just not representative of the creature known as fruitcake? It is the only kind I've had. It looks like fruitcake looks. It has tiny, chewy bright bits of bitter candied orange peel and sweet raisins in it. It is in dense loaf form. It is sweet and strange and delicious.
Come on, what's so bad about fruitcake?
(Hope y'all are having nice holidays and are being safe for New Year's Eve. Have a great new year, everybody.)
