Christmas Fruit Cake start cooking

  1. FRUIT PREPRATION:    Chop and soak the dry fruits in rum/wine and keep it in a bottle  at room temperature. (You could do it 2 to 3 months ahead. Make sure you shake the jar once a while. Longer the better. I do a year in advance).
  2. CARAMEL PREPRATION: In a heavy bottomed pan, add the sugar and a tbsp of water on medium high heat. The sugar will start to melt and start to change colour. Swirl the vessel a couple of times. Slowly the colour will become a little dark golden brown. Turn off the heat, immediately pour half a cup of water, stir and mix well (Wear oven mittens and a long sleeve shirt. Caramel is hot and can splatter, especially when adding water)..
