Sorry about the original post for this. I am not sure what happened, but everything I put in this post was gone between writing, saving and publishing….. aarrgghh! The blessing and curse of technology!
I wish I could remember all the words I had used, but I can’t. So, this will be more just a recipe. Though, I will say that it was wonderful, super easy and delicious! Don’t be afraid to make fondue.
I recommend a fondue pot for this, or you might be able to keep it warm in a crockpot.
1 clove garlic, peeled and cut in half
1 cup hard cider, check for GF (I used Angry Orchard Apple Ginger)
1 pound sharp cheddar, shredded (check for GF)
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
Salt & Pepper
Rub the inside of a heavy pot or dutch
oven with the cut side of the garlic. Add the cider and bring to a
simmer over medium heat. (If you really love garlic you could chop or garlic press it into the fondue)
In a bowl, toss the cheeses with the
cornstarch. Working in 3 batches, gradually stir the cheese mixture into
the cider until melted, cook, stirring
occasionally, until the mixture is gently bubbling, about 2 minutes;
Serve immediately from the dutch oven or transfer to a fondue pot or crockpot.
We had this with:
Challah Bread, cut into cubes
Peel and eat shrimp
Boiled potatoes, tiny red ones, or chunks
