Fondue without alcohol?

My husband can't have alcohol, but I would love to make a cheese fondue for New Years dinner! The fondue we always had in the past contained Emmentaler, Gruyere, kirsch and white wine. Any ideas? thanks so much!

That may be difficult. The wine keeps the cheese smooth and fluid.

My grandmother use to make this fondue for the children, and it was very nice.

Method one

1 garlic clove, halved crosswise
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 lb Emmental cheese, coarsely grated (2 cups)
1/2 lb Gruyère , coarsely grated (2 cups)
6 tbsp double cream
11/2 glass milk

Rub a pot with cut sides of garlic
Heat the pot, then add the cheese cubes
When it start melting add 1/2 of the double cream add the milk slowly stirring constantly and finish with the rest of the milk where you have
stir the cornstarch
Bring fondue to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes.

Method 2

You can also replace the white vine with 1 tbsp white vinegar and add water, to make for the quantity of white wine you should use in your recipe
For me, a balanced meal is having a large piece of cake in each hand!!
