Fruitcake with homemade candied orange peel
Hi: I'm looking for a fruitcake recipe that wasn't cooked. I candied the orange peel whole and after drying - I stuffed them with a mixture of nuts? candied fruit? and I believe graham crackers? orange juice? and brandy. I wrapped them in cheesecloth soaked in either rum or brandy. I think I kept soaking them once a week. Seems like they had to sit at least 30 days. Then you sliced them in rounds. Amazingly, astoundingly good. One of those things you just KNOW you'll never forget. Hope you can help. I did them in October to get ready for Christmas. I had to use the LARGE navel oranges..
