Did you know you have to season your homemade fruitcake before it is ready to eat? Seasoning helps to improve the flavour and texture. Follow our easy steps to make your fruitcake holiday ready.
“Seasoning,” also known as ripening or ageing, a fruitcake involves letting it mature in a cool, dark place for several weeks. While the process sounds strange, it’s a traditional technique meant to improve the flavour and texture of fruitcake.
Unseasoned fruitcake tends to be dry and crumbly, while seasoned fruitcake is easier to slice and has a more developed flavour and texture.
Some fruitcake recipes call for seasoning, while others do not. If you want to season a fruitcake that doesn’t call for it, be extra careful to watch for mould, as the fruitcake may not survive the room-temperature ageing period.
Fruitcakes are packed full of candied fruits and nuts and are impressive on their own, but we can help you to elevate them to the next level for the holiday season. Impress your family and friends by following these easy decorating steps and make your fruitcakes festive.
