This is one of our favorite fondue recipes. The buttermilk adds a great tang and helps the cheese melt beautifully.
· 2 T cornstarch
· ½ t salt
· Freshly ground pepper to taste
· 1 1b. swiss cheese, grated
· 2 cups buttermilk
· 1 loaf crusty French bread, cut into bit-size pieces (each with some crust)
Toss grated cheese with cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Over medium to medium-high heat, heat buttermilk and gradually add cheese. Stir constantly until mixture boils and become smooth. Put cheese mixture in fondue pot and serve with bread pieces. (Kevin and I both really liked this fondue with apples and veggies too).
