Another one from the world's best Mama. Tzimmes is a yiddish word for a sweet culinary creation made of various stewed fruits and vegetables and is a great complement to roasted meats. Enjoy!

These are very tasty, I also added some dried cranberries. I belive that the amount of liquid was left out of the recipe. I used just enough water to cover the carrots. I think you could use apple juice. I will be making this again.

  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer gently until the carrots are crisp tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover from the pan, raise the heat and cook the carrots until most of the liquid has evaporated and the sauce is thickened, about five minutes.
