Recipe by Oolala

From "A Little Jewish Cookbook" by Barbara Bloch. I've had this book a long time and this was the first tzimmes I ever made and it was well received. You can add some cinnamon if you like. I use the canned yams so no need to soften them as you do the carrots. I like the short cut! I just made this again and added dried apricots and orange zest. You can be creative with this dish.
