Beaujolais Wine Fondue

If you happened to stop into The Boulevard Market today you were in for a special sampling of Beaujolais Wine Fondue!!

A really easy and fun appetizer or dessert that's a little "fancy" and suits the holiday season beautifully!  (Sorry, still no pics, I need to buy more space and I haven't done it yet!)

We just Beaujolais Nouveau  since it is so trendy right now (and there was an extra cup hanging around :))  I also think the Beaujolais is nice since it's fruity and light.  You could easily use any wine you want, including white!  We paired our fondue up for dipping with a Cranberry/Raisin Focaccia bread and Cubes of Quicke's Farmhouse Cheddar from England.  BIG HIT!!  Hope you'll try it out!

2 cups dry wine
1 cup sugar
6 teaspoons dry pectin

Combine wine and sugar in a large saucepan over high heat.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and allow to reduce about 25 minutes or until approximately 1 cup of liquid remains.  Stir in pectin and boil 1 minute, then remove from heat.  Allow to cool to warm and serve!

BTW; this would be AMAZING over ice cream.....
