    This sounds so good! I hate those nasty cherries that are in 'regular' fruitcake - they are so sickly sweet. This is definitely on my to-make list for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing! - Natalie

    Sounds very pretty (and tasty too). I agree with you about citron, and I suggest you candy your own pink grapefruit peel--much much better.
