A 141 Year Old Fruit Cake That People Are Excited To Get
What is your thought on Fruit Cake? I was raised that it was something you gave to the older people in your life like Grandparents but then as I got older, I learned that it was something that was given to people that you really aren't a fan of.
I'm not really sure what the actual tradition is, if there is one or if there is something to be said for getting or giving fruit cake as a gift at Christmas but when you involve tradition and food that is more than 100 years old, it becomes a whole story all of its own.
The Ruttinger Family in Michigan say that it's an honor to get a 141-year old fruit cake because it was baked originally by Fidelia Ford, Mrs Ruttinger's great, great grandmother.
It has been a tradition that has been passed down with no end in sight.
I'm not really sure that I would eat it but it seems like a great honor.
