• Each fruitcake is the perfect balance of native pecans (27%), shelled here in Corsicana, Texas.
|How do you "Doctor" the DeLuxe® Fruitcake?|
|We recommend a good Cognac, Brandy, Red Wine or Port be used. Simply soak a clean white cheese cloth in the spirit of your choice then remove the cello wrap from your DeLuxe® and place the cloth completely around the cake. Make sure to fill the center hole with part of the well soaked cloth.
Place the "Doctored" DeLuxe® back in the tin and refrigerate. After about 5 days remove and re-soak the cheese cloth with special interest on the part in center of cake.
Repeat every 5 days keep tasting until it's just right.
|How do you store the DeLuxe® and what's the correct way to slice it?|
|The DeLuxe® is best when enjoyed within a few days of arrival. With refrigeration, it can stay moist and easy-to-slice for a least two months. For longer storage, we suggest the freezer.
To Slice: Without removing the foil liner, slice with a serrated knife using a sawing motion. Wipe blade with a wet cloth after each slice. Remove liner for serving. Slicing with the liner still in place yields consistent slices for a more attractive presentation.
|How long does the DeLuxe® last?|
Oh, about 10 minutes after its unwrapped? smile!
Your cake will keep well at room temperature for 60-90 days. (I always put mine in the refrigerator). If long storage is anticipated then the freezer is the place for it.
|Is the DeLuxe® Fruitcake only available at certain times of the year?|
|The DeLuxe® Fruitcakes are always freshly baked and available year round.
