FIRST i want to complain about having to register and log in just to ask some simple questions. this is a nuisance.
in your receipe traditional christmas cake you say use barley wine. asda does not sell this. which shop sells this.
also in the same receipe you say use breadcrumbs. do you advise using dried breadcrumbs available from asda or fresh breadcrumbs?
your christmas cake and pudding and mincemeat do not require maturing time. why? If I want to let these items mature when should i make them and please give storage instructions.
I will be storing in florida usa, very hot humid tropical weather.
your christmas cake does not require brushing the top with brandy. why? if i want to do this how much brandy should i use and how often should i brush?
