This recipe is from Southern Living 1981. I've edited the instructions slightly for stovetop. The preserves may be heated in the microwave on medium for 2-3 minutes.

  1. Scoop the ice cream into four small serving dishes and refreeze.
  2. Combine the preserves, pecans and kirsch in a small saucepan.
  3. Heat gently until the preserves are heated through and partially melted.
  4. Spoon the preserves over the ice cream and serve immediately.

This is better than any Dairy Queen Sundae! I used the Kirsch and increased the nuts... my DH and DS absoutely loved this for dessert tonight, thanks for sharing DG!...Kitten:)

This was really really good. I never thought of using strawberry preserves as an ice cream topping. Much cheaper then the bottled topping. Thank you.
