  4. Add all cheeses (see above) and stir to combine until cheese begins to melt
  5. Mix 4 teaspoons of corn starch with 1 tablespoon of real lemon juice and add to cheese mixture
  6. Return cheese mixture to a medium heat and stir for 10 minute. Note: The mixture will melt further and begin to thicken.  At about the 8 minute mark add about 4-5 healthy shakes of nutmeg and about 4-5 generous shakes of white pepper
  7. Continue to stir and all ingredients. Once mixture thickens, pour into a fondue pot and keep heat at a consistent medium-low

Grab your fondue fork and poke a piece of cubed bread to dunk in the fondue. Apples are also great with this fondue. Perfect for enjoying during fall and winter!

Cheers!
