My parents baked them on Thanksgiving Day, wrapped them in wine-soaked cloths and aluminum foil, and let them mellow in a refrigerator until near Christmas. I never tasted their fruitcake because when I was little, they used to tell me "you wouldn't like it." But I still remember how the house smelled when they were baking, and I have Mom's recipe, which I think came down through Dad's family.
What a wonderful tradition your parents had -- sharing their delicious fruitcakes with others. I'm definitely a fruitcake fan...!
