Indiana Christmas Fruitcake

I found this recipe in my Hoosier Cookbook-1974 (Indiana is known as the Hoosier State) this afternoon. I think I may make this for Christmas 2011. I have green tomato mincemeat I canned last summer sitting in the cabinet just waiting to be used in a recipe. No need to add spices as they are already in the mincemeat.
