Tzimmes - a Sweet & Savory Jewish Stew

Tzimmes - a Sweet & Savory Jewish Stew created by Jonathan Melendez

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.

    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.
