Can you put margarine in a fondue pot?

And have it drip margarine, like you can with chocolate or cheese?%0D %0D I have a barbecue today, and I thought since we were having baked potatos, rolls and corn on the cob, it would be a great idea to do a margarine waterfall type of thing.%0D %0D

Margarine? Margarine? Are you having the residents of Shady Pines over?

by Anonymousreply 107/04/2011

melt it, put it in a little dish over a candle with a basting brush - a fondue pot is overkill, unless you need enough margarine/butter for a hundred people.

Why make things so complicated and pretentious? Just put out the margarine, and people will decide whether they want some or not. People don't pour margarine on their food, like a fondue....unless you have a squeeze Parkey.

R20 do you live on the planet earth? Butter dry? Butter tasteless? Where do you get your butter? Since you are giving your guests one of the worst foods you can eat, corn is a GMO crop you should give them margarine and see if you can't kill them off by the end of the day.

I don't agree with your idea of putting margarine in a fondue pot but I'll fight to the death for your right to do it.

by Anonymousreply 2407/04/2011

You will need plenty of those little plastic corn cob holders so your guests can roll the corn against your fountain. Also, etiquette dictates that your guests roll the corn TOWARDS themselves and they shouldn't roll ears they've already gnawed on. They could use the same holders for the rolls. If you could build up some pressure, I'm sure your guests could hold the potatoes under the stream. Potential Problems: gusty winds

Is it a myth that margarine was originally used to make plastic or used to fatten turkeys? One of those things.

by Anonymousreply 7511/25/2011

I used to work for Unilever, who owns most of the margarines on the market (Becel, Blue Bonnett, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Country Crock, etc), and it was pretty much known by all that they were food substitutes that were a molecule away from being plastic. But then, most of their products are artificial slop - Knorr still uses monosodium glutamate as an addictive additive when they really don't have to, Suave and Dove products are full of chemical and cheap fillers, and although they insist they don't, Unilever still tests on animals.
