Fondue Problem

Linda513 | Apr 15, 2007 04:16 PM

I was craving fondue so I went out today and bought a fondue pot and the ingredients to make cheese fondue. It came out bloody awful - I had to throw it away. It was very loose and so bitter, and it tasted mainly of wine. What did I do wrong? I used emmanthaler and gruyere with flour sprinkled on, white wine, lemon juice, kirsch. The ratio of wine to cheese was 2 cups wine to 1 pound cheese. Is that too much wine? The recipe said not to let the wine come to a boil, I'm thinking maybe I should have let it boil to get rid of the alcohol. Any tips?
