It’s fruitcake season
Not like the fruitcake we grew up with – this is moist cake, filled with cardamon and coriander, organic dried fruit (READ: nothing dyed bright red or green), and a buttery flavor which apparently comes from cooking brandy into it. It startles people on a yearly basis who believe they firmly hate fruitcake. I sure did.
we sort through oven bounty –
“this one’s uneven,
this one’s a little too brown”
learning how to share takes time.
