Fruitcake: The Christmas Classic

What the Heck is a Fruitcake?

   Fruitcakes originated in ancient Rome where they were called satura and made from pine nuts, barley mash, pomegranate seeds, raisins, and honeyed wine. We often eat these cakes at Christmas due to British traditions dating back centuries. 

   Modern fruitcakes are made with nuts, spices, and dried or candied fruits, hence the name fruitcakes. At least once in every person’s lifetime, they should try a fruitcake.
