We had a Girl's Night at our house last night while the men were at Priesthood session of General Conference. I wanted to try something fun to eat, so after looking through several recipes, I decided upon cheese fondue. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, and it was submitted by Kim Marie Van Rheenen. We have done cheese fondue before, but this recipe is our favorite so far. A lot of fondue recipes call for wine, but this one uses apple cider. We thought the cider added a very nice flavor to the fondue. We had several items to fondue besides the French bread, including peppers, mushrooms, cooked potato, sausage slices, apple chunks, cooked carrot chunks. Very good!
3/4 C apple cider or apple juice
2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1 C shredded Swiss cheese
1 T cornstarch
1/8 t pepper
dash of salt, as desired
1 loaf French bread, cubed
1. In a large saucepan, bring cider to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. toss the cheeses with cornstarch and pepper; stir into cider. Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Transfer to a fondue pot or slow cooker to keep warm.
