Nesselrode is a very lovely dessert of candied fruits, chestnuts and wine or rum, which was served with custard or in a pie or tart, and I think it was sold once in jars. It seems almost entirely forgotten now. I have very dim and fond memories of nesselrode over ice cream when I was much younger in New York (30+ years ago). I had forgotten it completely except for a sensation of the taste, and with the help of a friend was able to at least identify it again, although I have only located recipes in cookbooks and on line. I am not sure if anyone is producing it for sale anymore, much less serving it.
Has anyone seen or heard of it in the LA / OC area?
