ekactiurF

ekactiurF

yeah, it has to be 'hidden' - people have feelings about this stuff.
perhaps Admin will open up a private by invitation only section for ekactiurF type discussions . . .
someplace where "can we talk?" without being thrown off the Net.

anyway, Christmas is coming - so it's time to start thinking about ekactiurFs - I like to brandy mine and that takes a little seasoning time.

I have a couple recipes from my grandmother/great grandmother, a couple from the WW2 years ("butter-less" / sugar-less - heavy on the eggs...)

some I've dressed up with more exotic dried/candied fruits and nuts ala macadamias....

any other ekactiurF baking fans?

I think I know what you're on about lol! I like currants instead of the raisins, adding loads of dates, glace cherries and ginger instead and I opt for Spiced Rum instead of the Brandy :)
I can't stand cooked raisins "AKA dried flies :P" I make my own so that I don't have to pick them out!

I like it when it's fresh, before it's had time to season.

I used to make them but now I buy one from an outfit in Texas that is pretty good.

I have to pull the shades and eat it in private or risk the ridicule and shame heaped on me by family and friends.

No booze on mine though. I do make at least one batch of hot nutmeg sauce to pour over one serving. The rest I eat plain with extra sharp cheddar cheese.

OK I'm stupid, why can't you talk about it? Too soon or something?

I work in the bakery at Costco and we will soon be making 1500-2000 of those F%@*&^g (my way to spell it) things and I can't stand them. Much the same as I don't like apple or pumpkin pie

That's how I feel about maple bars.

For those of use who haven't figured out the "conundrum", please explain the acronym.

Is it some kind of fruitcake?

I have to admit to never having made one [blushes]. I may try it this year - I'll ask Mum for my Grandma's recipe. Whatever the recipe it will be "watered" weekly with some form of alcohol!

Unscramble the letters in "ekactuirF" Starting with F arrange the letters in a different order and you get the answer :)

Thank you, Snip. It was driving me nuts. I kept thinking it was some kind of acronym with a word represented by each letter.
