- Cooking: 20 min
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 1 dry shallot chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 cup (250 mL) white wine
- 1/3 cup (80 mL) dried cranberries

- 1 tbsp (15 mL) corn starch
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
In a fondue pot over medium heat, melt the butter and sauté the shallot and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Add wine, cranberries and rosemary and simmer about 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced to 1/3. Add shredded cheeses and corn starch. Let melt over low heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. Add pepper to taste. Serve at once with different breads, but also cured meats, vegetables, fruit, nuts, etc.
For a more kid-friendly alternative, replace white wine with chicken broth or unsweetened apple or white grape juice. Recipe can be prepared in the microwave oven at low intensity.
For tasty alternatives, try this with Canadian Raclette, Provolone or Emmental.
