Please help!  I read in a cook book about Nesselrode pie but the author assumed that everyone knows what Nesselrode is , I don't .

It would be helpful if I can have a picture of it .

Perhaps this will help:

my first thought was it was something to do with stinging nettles but I guess not!

I just had to add a comment here. One of my cats nickname is Nesselrode or Nessy for short. It's actually quite good. Sweet, cold and chewy. It sort of reminds me of spumoni ice-cream. Hey, spumoni would be a good kitty name, too. :rolleyes:

Shelley: Would you like some pie?

Gordon: MASSIVE, MASSIVE QUANTITIES AND A GLASS OF WATER, SWEETHEART. MY SOCKS ARE ON FIRE.

Apparently there is Nesselrode and there is Nesselrode. The classic European dessert contained chestnut puree and candied fruit. The American version, a popular Christmas dessert in the 1950s & 60s, usually skipped the chestnuts in favor of more candied fruit, rum, and chocolate shavings.

I haven't heard mention of Nesselrode Pie in decades. Even finding a photo of one on the web is a challenge.

If you don't know what Nesselrode Pie is, you're in good company.
