Recipe by mollypaul

Count Nesselrode was a 19th-century Russian diplomat who lived and dined quite lavishly. As a result, he had a number of rich dishes dedicated to him by chefs. The most famous is Nesselrode pudding, developed by his head chef Mouy. This dessert sauce just lovely over ice cream or vanilla cake.

I love Nesselrode sauce over vanilla ice cream with pound cake. I used to be able to buy it, but the shop went out of business. This tastes exactly like what I used to get. I put the fruit through the meat grindeg, except I coarsely chopped the cherries by hand. Thank you, thank you Molly. Now I'll never be without again.
