Tzimmes is a lightly sweetened stew that is served on Jewish holidays such as Passover or Rosh Hashanah. This is my grandmother's recipe made with carrots, sweet potatoes and pineapple.
1 person made this
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
5 carrots, sliced
1 to 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons honey
30ml orange juice
1 pinch of salt
2 slices tinned pineapple, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Method Prep:15min › Cook:50min › Ready in:1hr5min
Heat the oil in a pot and add the carrots with a few tablespoons of water. Simmer until the carrots are soft, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often and adding water as needed so the carrots won't burn. Add the sweet potatoes and stir to combine, then add the honey and orange juice and season to taste with salt.
Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer at medium heat until the sweet potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes. At the very end, add the pineapple and the nutmeg and cook for an additional 5 minutes until heated through. Serve warm.
