What's Cooking?'s Note:
This sweet stew is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). It's a great showcase for fall vegetables and is straightforward enough for even an inexperienced cook to make. Serve in bowls as a stew, or plate it with brisket, roast chicken or roast beef as a side dish.
