Recipe by Lizzymommy

from Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Tsimmes is a festive Jewish dish that combines vegetables and fruit; savory with tart and sweet. There is no official recipe, but one thing all versions have in common is the technique: just throw everything together and bake it for a long time. The dish is also fabulous for American holiday meals - an excellent variation on the traditional sweet potato dishes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1-inch pieces. Place them in a large bowl, add all remaining ingredients except bread crumbs (if using), and toss until nicely combined. Don't worry if it's not perfectly uniform.
  3. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole or equivalent baking pan, sprinkle with crumbs if using and cover with foil Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until everything is very tender and indistinguishable from everything else.
