Do you Fondue?

A few years ago the hubby and I went to "The Melting Pot".  It was super fun (and yummy) and I thought my kids would really like it.  However, it's a little pricey to take the entire family, so I bought my own fondue pot.  Most of the recipes have some sort of alcohol, but since I know nothing about that I came up w/ my own. (I learned the hard way that mozzarella does not do well in fondue-big stringy mess) I've played around with a few recipes until I think I found the perfect one.
1 clove garlic
1 1/2 cups white grape juice
1 tsp. bouillon
1 Tb lemon juice or red wine vinegar
1 pound Swiss cheese (shredded)
1/8 tsp. black pepper
 Cut garlic in half and rub on the inside of pan. Add juices and bouillon and heat until hot (not boiling).  Dredge cheese with flour. Slowly add cheese to pan (stirring constantly) until smooth. Add pepper. Start dipping!

 We like to dip:
Mandarin Oranges

My favorites are Granny Smith Apples and French Bread!
It's a super fun meal that always seems more like a party than dinner.
