Step 1: Rub the pot
Peel and cut the garlic clove and rub the inside of the pot or saucepan with it. Discard what’s left.

For extra garlicky fondue, finely mince the remaining garlic and add it to the pot.

Step 2: Coat the cheese
Sprinkle the grated cheeses with cornstarch and toss to coat.

You can use Monterey jack and muenster, too, if you like.

Step 3: Heat the wine
Add the wine and bring it to a simmer. Then add the lemon juice.

Step 4: Add the cheese
Stir in the cheese a handful at a time. Melt the cheese gradually for a smooth result.

Step 5: Season
Add the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Then add the dry mustard and cherry brandy.

Step 6: Keep it hot
Place the finished fondue over a candle or canned heat to keep it hot.

Step 7: Dip and eat
Serve with an assortment of dipping foods, such as bits of crusty bread, boiled new potatoes, lightly steamed vegetables, cubes of ham or sausage, or tart apple slices.
