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.

Ingredients Nutrition


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