1 eight-ounce package Gruyère cheese (or a similar hard cheese such as Fontina, Emmental, or Swiss)

1 tablespoon white flour

3/4 cup dry white wine

1 clove garlic

1 tablespoon herbes de Provence

2 Granny Smith apples

On trail

Chop garlic, slice apples, and cut rolls into bite-size pieces; arrange morsels on bamboo skewers (or just use forks). Cook wine and garlic in a covered pot over high heat for about three minutes, until simmering. Toss cheese with the flour in a zip-top bag, then add to the wine mixture. Turn heat to low and stir until cheese melts (about two minutes). Mix in herbs, then dip your skewers, or serve small cheese bowls.
