Cheese Fondue
30 mins (prep 30)
6 ingredients
6 servings
This is a great basic fondue recipe! A couple tips: instead of mixing the cornstarch in the kirsch, put it in a large plastic bag or tupperware container with the cheese and shake. This makes the melting of the cheese much less likely to ball up. If the melting cheese just isn't getting smooth, try adding a touch of lemon juice--the acid cuts the proteins and prevents balling (if this happens, next time use a drier, more acidic wine). Blanched veggies, such as cauliflower or carrots, are also good as dippers.
