Directions

Notes

Cook’s Note: Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. Limit the child to tasks that are safe and age-appropriate.

Step 1

Bring the apple juice to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Toss the Gruyere and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Add to the simmering juice by the scant handful, whisking constantly until smooth and letting the sauce come to a boil between additions, about 30 seconds. Remove the saucepan from the heat, stir in the Parmesan and mustard and season with ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Step 2

Pour into a serving bowl, and serve with the dippers of your choice.
