I'm NOT a tzimmes person...but for a tzimmes, this was really great. I used figs and apricots (dried) instead of prunes (personal tastes of the family) and a bit more apple and sweet potato since I was out of regular potatoes. Also added a splash of cumin and some clove and maybe some nutmeg. Was good. Beautiful stew-y presentation. Good flavor. Just was slightly off for me. But almost delicious.
This was lovely -- and, I suspect, will be even more tasty tomorrow! Since there are only two of us, I cut the recipe in half, and used a combination of prunes and apricots. Served with brisket and latkes to celebrate the final day of Hannukah.
