How To Heat A Fondue Pot
Written By A Special Writer : Your One and Only, Amazing, Awesomely Unique FOOD Expert and Guru….. Mr. Efrain E. Silva! ( Woot Woot! )
Here are some basic tips for whenever you would like to heat fondue in your pot. Keep the following in mind. Now, let’s go… I have got a great read in store for each and every one of you today ( whoever is online reading this, he heh… come one, come all! ) ….
Now, then, the first thing that I would like to point right out is this fact —- that garlic or shallots can be your very, very best friend here, all in all… especially as you come to that first step of just preparing your pot. Rub these on the pot, on the bottom and all around the sides, of course. That is an easy first step to follow, right? Now then, after doing that, I need you to just simply start up the pot… go with a light – to – medium heat and then work your way up from there as you see fit. Get a feel for the timing… do not rush anything but blasting on high – heat as soon as you start it up, and then also, don’t let it heat forever by keeping it on slow… but like I said, gradually heat it up and keep watching the pot.
As you increase that flame little by little, you are going to then also want to throw in every one of your ingredients, one at a time ( no rush either ) . Stir often as you do so, of course, being sure not to let anything stick. And if it’s cheese fondue, I encourage to especially not forget this step…. cheese is gooey and sticky, by nature, of course. So very important to remember this.
About 5 minutes before everything is ready and cooked, you need to take both your burner and stand to the main table where you will be dining and then just simply light that burner once more. Put the pot right on top of it and just leave it there for the duration of your meal. Enjoy.
I might also like to just stop and add the fact that, for oils for cooking this with, you can feel free to generally use any cooking oil… like vegetable oil, canola oil, peanut oil ( make sure that no one in your group is allergic to peanuts, and yes, peanut oil does count as peanuts and can cause someone to have the same allergic reaction, no less ), basic broth, etc. When you are heating any such oils in the fondue pot, you can heat it ( or pre – heat, with the oils in the pot, first, however you like ) just under the boiling point… and each pot is known to have a different boiling point time ( see your manual for that ) . Hope you learned something!
