Pumpkin Fondue

For our late December anniversary, the Hub, the boys and I went to a fondue restaurant. It was so much fun. Because we had made a reservation and the restaurant wasn't too crowded that evening, we were seated at a table that had two cooking units (probably usually saved for larger groups). This allowed us to sample two different fondues or cooking broths at the same time. We took advantage of this and tried all kinds of the things; we could barely drag ourselves out when the meal was over and have nothing but great thoughts about fondue.

This pumpkin fondue recipe from the blog Eating Rules is really good. It starts with hard apple cider (many of the cheese fondues we tried started with beer) and adds pumpkin puree, both sweet and savory spices, and three types of cheese. I served it with warm rolls, apple slices and slightly steamed vegetables plus salami slices for the Hub. We both really enjoyed it and I plan on making it again.
