Fonduing the Night Away (My wasted youth...)

Last night was fun!

First batch of fondue I added cheddar... not a good thing, turned into a sort of cheese ball that people were having to poke and prod apart with their veggies (way too hard for use with bread). Second batch was just about right, stuck to the recipe and it had what I think was just about a perfect consistency.

The chocolate fondue, of course, worked perfectly (it's pretty straightforward stuff, just melt (dark) chocolate bars by putting boiling water in the bottom of the copper pot). We ran entirely out of fruit for it, going through the two extra pineapples someone brought along as well as the entire set of fruit we'd bought (we wound up buying fruit twice, as the first was variously rotten and underripe).

    I've got no idea what cheddar has to search in a fondue, or vegatables, and frankly, I find chocolate fondue disgusting. (note of warning, I'm swiss).<br />
    <br />
    However, I took the liberty to shoot for usable fondue-recipes for you on the web (forget the about stuff, that's crap to begin with). And loo and behold, you can find good fondue recipes on the web (basically I judge this by, how close does the recipe match my fondue making expirience).<br />
    <br />
    So here ya go, it's not *that* hard (the right cheese is really paramount)<br />

    /me shakes head in disbelieve, cheddar, *shudder*, vegetables ^^<br />

    A note on these recipes, they really cover all aspects, including the garlic rubbing of the pan and the slow turning of the cheese while you melt it (do it right and you'll get a fine brown baken cheese crust on the bottom of the pan you can eat afterwards)
