Look Mom, I'm thinking ahead! So, it's fruitcake time for real this time. Here's my sad post from last year: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/351641 I want to make some this year and do it right. And I would like to candy my own fruit. Does anyone have a fruitcake recipe with directions for candying fruit? I really need specifics, because a.) I've never been successful with candying anything and b.) I've never made fruitcake! Any help is much appreciated!
