Swiss Cheese Fondue


Swiss Cheese Fondue
(enough for 2 very hungry people!)
(Adapted from Fondue by Rick Rodgers)

Ingredients:

1 garlic clove, peels and an end cut off
1 cup dry white wine
1 tbsp lemon juice
18 ounces Emmentaler and Jarslberg cheeses - any ratio
(Gruyere also works well!)
4 tsp flour
1 tbsp Kirsch cherry brandy
Dash nutmeg
Pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Rub the inside of your fondue pot with the garlic. Add the wine and lemon juice and heat until you have a bare simmer, over medium heat.

2. Toss shredded cheese and flour together in a large bowl. Add the cheese to the simmering wine, one handful at a time, mixing with a wooden spoon until it melts.

3. Remove the fondue from the heat, add the Kirsch, nutmeg and pepper. Stir well and serve with bread cubes.
