A friend in the late '70s gave me this recipe. I have enjoyed it for years and thought I might share it. Hope you can find candied fruit at Christmas time. This year I had considerable difficulty finding candied cherries. I could find the container of mixed fruits, but not just the candied cherries. I suppose candied fruits are soon going to be a thing of the past. Afterall, how many people do you know that still make fruit cake?
