Recipe | "Judy's Cheese Fondue: A New Year's Eve Tradition" Shared by Alicia

This recipe was shared with my mother by her college friend Judy (a home-economics major) who was a fabulous cook and seamstress. She passed several years ago, but her memory lives on in this annual family tradition. The image on the right is the actual recipe card that resides in my mother's college recipe box.

Every New Year's Eve my family enjoys sitting around the kitchen table and dunking our bread in this delightful concoction of beer and cheese. We exchange stories, play games, and share our hopes for the new year.

If you are looking for something to do New Year's Eve that brings your family together, I highly suggest giving this family tradition a try...and don't forget...if you accidentally drop your bread in the fondue pot, you have to kiss everyone at the table!  It's tradition! Happy New Year! - A
