Tzimmes is a traditional side dish of carrots, sweet potatoes and dried fruits served on Rosh Hashanah (for a sweet New Year), Sukkot, and Pesach. Prunes are essential to the dish and my father loved prunes, which reminded him of home. The longer tzimmes is baked and stirred, the deeper and richer the flavors. Tzimmes is sometimes served on Shabbat; however, it’s a special dish most often reserved for the holidays. When we say “Don’t make a tzimmes,” it means “don’t make a big deal out of it.” My father added short ribs to tzimmes; however, many people today prefer the vegetarian version which follows.

Prepare the Tzimmes

  1. In a six-quart Dutch oven place pineapple juice and carrots and add water just to cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Decrease heat to low, cover, and simmer until carrots are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add remaining ingredients to Dutch oven and mix well. Uncover and bake for at least two hours, stirring to mix every 15 to 20 minutes.

Tip:

Serve as a side with brisket or poultry.
