Recipe: Cheese and Apple Fondue

This is another great cheese fondue…. this one is made with apple cider and Calvados. Calvados is an apple brandy from the French region of Basse-Normandie or Lower Normandy. You should be able to find it at most liquor stores.

This recipe is from the book, “Fondue” by Lou Seibert Pappas… it is delicious!

This is served with apple and pear slices… and, of course, bread cubes…. It’s a nice change from the other cheese fondues with its cheese and apple flavor….

And it also makes a party food.
