admin's picture
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), cut in half
  Light dry white wine 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Such As Riesling, Chablis, Or Traminer)
  Swiss cheese 1⁄2 Pound, shredded (Imported, Emmental)
  Gruyere 1⁄2 Pound, shredded (Use Swiss Or Danish, Samsoe)
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon
  Dry mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Kirsch 3 Tablespoon
  Freshly ground nutmeg To Taste (To Taste)
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste (To Taste)
  Loaf 1 Small
  French bread 1 , cut in 1-inch cubes with some crust on each

Rub the fondue pot with the cut garlic.
Add wine, and heat slowly until bubbles form and slowly rise to the surface.
Combine the two cheeses, cornstarch, and mustard (if used).
Add cheese mixture, a spoonful at a time; stir slowly and continuously until all the cheese is blended into a smooth sauce.
Stir in kirsch (if used) a tablespoon at a time, and again bring to a slow boil. (If the heat gets too high at any time, the fondue may separate.) Sprinkle with nutmeg and pepper.
Take to table with bread cubes, and adjust heat so fondue keeps bubbling slowly.
If fondue gets too thick, thin with heated wine.
