I just got a fondue set and would love to get any recipes you have!<br><br>
So far we've tried Hershey's Semi-Sweet chocolate chips melted with a bit of cream on pineapple, strawberries, apple slices and banana bread. YUM!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We do chinese or cheese fondue quite regularly.<br><br>
We just buy the chinese fondue broth. I think the brand is Canton and it comes in a very large can.<br>
Then we cook thinly sliced beef and veggies in it. And make a million little dipping sauces for it. Sometimes we use thinly sliced chicken breast or shrimps and scallops.<br><br>
For the cheese fondue, we buy it at the store and eat it with a good baguette and some veggies. Most times, we only use bread and have a green salad on the side. It makes for an almost instant meal. My kids love it but I remember hating it as a child because of the wine taste the cheese has.<br><br>
Edited to add, after I noticed you're in Canada:<br><br>
For some reason, I was never able to find chinese fondue broth when I lived on the west coast, but it's at every grocery store in Ontario and Quebec.<br><br>
For the cheese fondue, I like the President's Choice brand with Ace Bakery baguette.<br><br>
These are two things I wish I had recipes to make from scratch, but since we eat so little processed food, I don't feel to bad when I do have some.

There is a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBook-Fondues-2-Lesley-Mackley%2Fdp%2F1557883777%2Fref%3Dsr_1_8%2F002-6760255-6228851%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1178233997%26sr%3D8-8" target="_blank">2nd volume</a> available, but I don't have it yet.<br><br>
I highly recommend buying it used, you can usually get it for under $1.<br><br>
The recipe that I get the most use out of is the Hot Cranberry Fondue recipe, I serve it at the holidays with cold cubed turkey roast.

Authentic Swiss fondue as made by my dad who grew up in Switzerland:<br><br>
1 pound Swiss cheese, coarsely shredded (this really should be a mixture of Gruyrere and Emmantaler but I have had passable results with everything from the cheapest generic swiss to the reduced fat Jarlsberg that they have at Trader Joe's. When we were kids, mom sometimes swapped out some or all of this for jack or cheddar)<br><br>
2 tbs white flour (yes, it has to be white. I've tried WW. It doesn't work)<br><br>
2 cups white wine (I like to use a chenin blanc or sauvingion blanc, but white table wine is fine)<br><br>
1 tbs fresh lemon juice<br><br>
Several cloves of fresh pressed garlic.<br><br>
White or black pepper<br><br>
A dash of nutmeg<br><br>
3 tbs Kirschwasser or other cherry flavored brandy (can be omitted)<br><br>
2 sourdough baguettes, sliced apple, blanched broccoli (my father, may he rest in peace, would call me a heretic for suggesting that you dip broccoli in fondue. I like it, though.)<br><br>
Cube the bread. Toss the cheese with the flour. Heat the wine with the lemon juice and garlic until bubbling, then add the flour coated cheese by handfuls, stirring until completely melted between additions. Add nutmeg, pepper and Kirsch. Serve with bread, apple and broccoli. If you lose whatever you are dipping in the cheese, you need to kiss the person on your right.
