The Trick to Making the Best Fondue on Earth (Hint: Wine, Rum and Tons of Cheese)

If you’re anything like us, you probably assumed cheese fondue involved just melting up a big bowl of grated cheese, sticking some bread onto skewers and calling it a day. Boy, were we wrong. Turns out the secret to achieving that ooey-gooey goodness involves much more than just good cheese. Here, our recipe for the most delicious fondue you’ve ever tasted. What You Need: - 1 garlic clove - 2 cups grated Gruyère - 2 cups finely chopped Swiss cheese - 2 tablespoons cornstarch - 1 cup dry white wine - Juice from one lemon wedge - 1 tablespoon rum - 1 teaspoon dry mustard - A pinch of nutmeg - Assorted pieces of bread, apple and veggies for dipping Step 1: Rub the garlic clove along the sides of the fondue pot. (This will prevent sticking and enhance the flavor.) Step 2: Add the Gruyère, Swiss and cornstarch to a large bowl and mix until well combined. Step 3: Pour the white wine and lemon juice into the fondue pot, then turn on the burner to heat the mixture. Step 4: Gradually add the cheese and cornstarch mixture to the pot, stirring continuously until the mixture is smooth. Step 5: Continue to stir as you add the rum, dry mustard and nutmeg. Step 6: Skewer a piece of bread, apple or carrot and start dipping. (Yum.) RELATED: A Recipe for Dairy-Free Butternut Squash “Fondue” Additional Reporting by Abby Hepworth
