Tzimmes Recipe

I found this recipe a long time ago. It has become our traditional side dish for every Chanukah and Passover feast and is a favorite of young and old alike…a great complement to chicken or turkey.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 large), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 pounds medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 package (12 ounces) pitted dried plums, halved
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed


  • 1. In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, combine the sweet potatoes, carrots and plums. Combine the orange juice, water, honey, brown sugar and cinnamon; pour over vegetables.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Uncover; dot with butter. Bake 45-60 minutes longer, carefully stirring every 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and sauce is thickened. Yield: 12 servings.
