Soaking the Christmas Cake Dried Fruit

Hi there,

When I soak the Christmas Cake dried fruit in rum (as I've just done), I want to do this for 3 days. Do I have to keep it in the fridge or can I leave it out of the fridge! Thanks for your advice in advance.

I woudl have thought out of the fridge is fine - but cover it well eg glad wrap

yes out of the fridge is best if you can. I just leave mine in the preserving pan covered and sitting usually in an out of the way place on the floor. Its fine and I've left it for a week soaking. Give it a stir or shake (swirl) a couple of times a day.
