Ready in 15 to 30 mins

Ingredients

    For dipping

  • 1 bunch British asparagus spears
  • 250g new potatoes
  • For the fondue

  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 250ml Thatchers Katy dry cider
  • 3 fresh sage leaves
  • 200g vegetarian mature Somerset Cheddar, like Green’s Farmhouse Mature
  • 200g Lubborn Somerset Brie
  • 1 tsp Suffolk Mud English mustard
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

How To Cook

  1. Put the potatoes into a pan with cold water, bring to the boil and cook until tender.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan and add the flour to form a roux. Cook for a minute over a low heat, being careful not to let the roux burn.
  3. Pour in the cider, whisking vigorously until you have a smooth thickened sauce. Simmer this sauce for a couple for minutes and add the sage leaves and mustard, then reduce the heat to low.
  4. Cut the cheeses into small cubes. Begin to gradually add them to the hot cider sauce stirring well and making sure the cheese is fully melted before you add more. Once all the cheese in incorporated season to taste.
  5. Cook the asparagus in boiling water for 4-5 minutes until just tender. Drain and arrange on a platter with the cooked potatoes.
  6. Transfer the fondue to a fondue bowl or eat straight from the pan, dipping in the asparagus and potatoes.
