@Shmoogu it's related to a fondue as it's a sauce much like a cheese fondue is a cheese sauce. It is tomato sauce. if you want to dip stuff into it by all means go for it. It is a great rendition of a tomato sauce.

You call this a Fondue so I'm assuming you are using it as a dip for something like vegetables,meats ? or what? Ideas???? Thanx, Shmoogu
