Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Cubed French bread and sliced apples and green peppers

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring cider to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Toss the cheeses with cornstarch and pepper; stir into cider. Cook and stir until cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a small fondue pot or 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker; keep warm. Serve with bread cubes and sliced apples and green peppers.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.
  • Cornstarch needs just a few minutes of boiling to thicken a sauce, gravy or dessert filling. If it cooks too long, the cornstarch will begin to lose its thickening power. Carefully follow the recipe for the best results.
