Fruity over fruitcake

Throughout the year we gather food. We look ahead to what could be. Right now there are bananas grown in the tropics on the counter. And there is a bowl of apricots bought last summer in the fridge- apricots bagged for this coming on winter and gruesome outdoors. And there is fruitcake. This weekend after Thanksgiving is our time of gathering together dried fruit and gleaned nuts. We mixed them in with freshly ground wheat flour, honey bought from a local factory and summer eggs. Its a solid, good way to say Farewell! to this year's Indian Summer Autumn.

@bunnybon7 Home fruitcake can be tasty- our recipe calls for a cup of butter. Not shortening but butter. This reminds me of somebody eating a dollar store shortbread cookie and telling me they don't know what the fuss is about shortbread. Eat a home butter filled shortbread and they'll figure it out!
