Any Old Bottle of Fruit Cake

2/3 c. shortening
1 ½ c. sugar
2 lg. eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. blended fruit (not jam)
2 c. flour
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
2 tsp. soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Blend any bottle or can of fruit of your choosing in a blender (can be blended fine or left with some larger chunks, too) and add it to the first mixture.  In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (the remaining ones) and then add the dry ingredients into the original creamed mixture.  You can mix in 1- 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips at the end and then spread it into a 9×13 greased pan or Pyrex.  Sprinkle the top with 1/3 to ½ cup of brown sugar and add a few chocolate chips on top or chopped walnuts or pecans to your taste.  Raisins can be used instead of chocolate chips or along with them.  Bake for 35-40 minutes.
