Swiss Cheese Fondue

Swiss Cheese Fondue

There are countless recipes for fondue, but most contain some form of the original “Swiss” cheese.  Many contain Emmentaler or Gruyere, but in today’s economic climate it is not always necessary to break the bank with expensive imports to impress your guests.  The taste is what will impress them, and the best tasting fondue we’ve tried is made with Ohio’s Amish Country Swiss Cheese   

Ingredients
  • 1 ½ Pounds of Grated Swiss Cheese
  • 1 peeled fresh garlic clove
  • ½  Pint of white wine
  • 1 Ounce of kirsch
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • pepper, nutmeg, or paprika to taste
Preparation
Start out by rubbing the inside of the fundue pan with the garlic clove.  Then place the dish over heat and begin warming the wine.  Stir in the grated cheese, and continue to stir constantly.  When the wine and cheese begin to bubble, add pre-mixed kirsch and cornstarch.  Continue to stir over heat for 2-3 minutes.
To serve, the fondue pot should be the centerpiece of the table placed over a spirit burner.  Make sure each guest has a plate and fondue fork.  There are many creative items to serve with fondue, but a basket of bread cubes is standard.

Serves 5 guests.
