Farmhouse Ale Fondue


1 cup Trillium Farmhouse Ale
1 lb Gruyère cheese, shredded
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp Northeast Kingdom Sweet Mild Mustard
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of paprika
Sea salt


Bring your beer to a boil over medium-high heat in a fondue pot or a medium heavy saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the beer is gently simmering.  Toss the shredded Gruyère with the cornstarch in a bowl. Once thoroughly combined, add the cheese mixture to the beer one handful at a time, stirring the cheese in a figure-eight pattern until completely melted before adding more.

Once all the cheese is completely melted, stir in 2 teaspoons ofNortheast Kingdom Mustard Company’s sweet mild mustard, followed by a dash of Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and salt to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy with sourdough bread, homemade pretzels (see page 68), or whatever else is in your pantry.
