    Bergy's Note:

    This is a mystery dish! - I cannot find the origin of where I got this recipe, nor can I find out the meanig Of "Tzimmes" However I serve this as a side dish with roast meat or chicken and it is wonderful. Who knows it could be a dessert!!! I think this would be a wonderful filling for sweet porogies instead of plum

      To paraphrase a commercial from the 70s -- tzimmes, it's not just for Rosh Hashana anymore! This was outstanding! I multipled the recipe for 16, and my only change was to add some cinnamon while it was cooking. The house smelled heavenly! This is a fantastic side dish, a wonderful complement to roast beef or brisket. I've made many different versions of tzimmes before (usually based on carrots), but this is the first time that the sweet potatoes (I used those instead of yams) had a starring role. Next time I'm going to add some pumpkin or butternut squash to the mix, it can only get better and better! Thanks Bergy, it was worth the tzimmes to make the tzimmes (tzimmes means troublesome in Yiddish)!

      I've never made tzimmes before and must admit that I don't care for sweet potatoes. Nonetheless, I was asked by my hostess to bring a tzimmes to her seder, so I made this one (tripling the recipe), adding a bit of cinnamon to it. (I picked this recipe because it matched my memory of tzimmes - sweet potatoes and carrots) It was easy to make, I had no issues with the amount of water and the other guests had positive things to say about it (unsolicited). I used about a tablespoon of honey per recipe.

      This was my first Tzimmis I tried, tended to be a bit too much liquid. So I added some Manechevitz Spiced Apple Butter to the mix... and that thickened it up, Improved the flavors too. By the way, Tzimmes comes from the yiddish. Tzimu... Some kind of Item (singular)... and Essen... To Eat So it's literally translated. Something to Eat
