The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Years ago cheese fondue was a safe bet when the vegetarians came to tea. I didn’t necessarily like or dislike it and it’s a great way of sharing food.
It’s often made with beer or white wine and sometimes that was a flavour I wasn’t keen on.
So in the super market, the one who cooks saw the emmental on special offer and he got excited.
I said, “what if we made it with cider?” And so a meal was born.
1 small bottle apple cider semi sweet
400g grated emmental cheese
I tsp coarse Mustard
2tsp cornflour in a little water.
Poor cider in saucepan heat gently.
Add the cheese a handful at a time and stir till melted.
Add the cornflour and water slowly and stir till a nice consistency.
Stir in the mustard to taste.
(it doesn’t need salt as the Cheese has plenty!)
Now it’s also good to choose yummy favourites to serve it with.
From the allotment (drum roll)
Purple sprouting broccoli
Garlic French beans
Then we had some other guest stars.

Lightly sautéed mushrooms with fried onion from the plot.
