I wanted to make fruitcake this year that people would enjoy and actually eat. Here is the recipe I came up with. My sister-in-law even asked for it! (Please note that my wife came up with the title, not me.) Time does not include "curing." (can also make 3 to 4 full sized loaves, approx)
Washington State University sells Cougar Cheese. The Viking Cheese is "a mild-flavored, semisoft cheese comparable to Monterey Jack," aged for at least four months. My wife and I are in a re-creation society and study Norse culture, and find the idea of a meatloaf stuffed with Vikings amusing.
