It has survived power outages in a cooler on the deck in the snow, and has made it from the old refrigerator to the new one. I can't imagine ever throwing it out, and I doubt we will ever eat it. My great-grandchildren will probably have it passed on to them!!
That is a nice way to keep her spirit alive, as well as her yummy fruitcake. Have you ever tried to make her receipe?
