Would you rather grate your fingernails across a chalk board instead of grating cheese? Are you a terrible cook? Does your idea of cooking consist of opening up a package and heating it? Well then instant fondue is the product for you.Instant fondue (also called Heat and Serve Fondue) comes in a vacuum sealed package of almost everything you'll need for a fondue dinner. Just open the package and place the contents in your fondue pot (or even on a regular pot on the stove). Here's the tricky part, you will still have to stir it. But shortly after that you can enjoy some quick and delicious fondue.
You can get instant fondue at upscale supermarkets and grocery stores. If you have a hard time finding it, then order it from Amazon.com. Ordering food over the internet, especially cheese might sound crazy but it's really no big deal. And since the package is all ready to travel, why not bring it on your next camping trip. Skip the S'mores and heat up some fondue over the campfire.
With heat and serve fondue you won't have to worry about measuring your ingredients. Everything is already in the package just waiting to be heated and served. That leaves more time to prepare the items for dipping. Cut up some crusty italian bread into bite sited pieces or use baby carrots and slices of celery.For the truly ambitious, you can add some seasonings to your instant fondue to jazz it up a little.
Add garlic powder, nutmeg and white pepper to improve the flavor. Add a little at a time and taste it as you go. When it tastes good to you then stop.
It's that easy. Of course you'll still have to cut up some bread to dip but you can even dip and entire loaf in the mixture if you are really anxious to try some fondue.A company called Tiger makes something called Fondue Classic.
