Re: That sounds pretty good, and do-able!

I am sure it would be fine with less sugar, though it is not all that sweet by taste as is.

The candied cherries last for years. Seriously. Ours are 10 years old and are fine- they're just decorative, anyway. If you use fruitcake mix, there will probably be a couple in it. Honestly, the decorative cherries are not functional- they are part of what maps as "julekaga" to me, and they are pretty.

I have done "yuppie" style julekaga with a mix of chopped dried fruit- like cherries, apples, apricots- replacing the fruitcake mix. Trader Joe used to sell a couple of versions of chopped dried fruit... They worked fine, and still tasted like julekaga. :)

It's really the cardamon that does the trick. That CANNOT be omitted. And keep it in the fridge or freezer, because it is very volatile.
