    Re: ANSWERS to QUIZ OF THE MONTH (Christmas Edition)

    Traditionally, good cooks in Jamaica macerate or soak their candied and other fruits in rum and brandy and other spirits at least a year ahead of making
    christmas cake/pudding. One month ahead is a wrong answer.

    According to Mrs. Enid Donaldson, in her <u>The Real Taste of Jamaica</u>, [i]Christmas cakes and puddings can be made up to 4 weeks before serving, as they actually improve with age.
