more Tzimmes I use the carrots from my chicken soup to make tzimmes. I dice the carrots, add some cinnamon and sugar or honey and warm together. Very quick since carrots are already well cooked. You can add prunes if you wish. Sometimes, I add left over matzos balls to the mixture for a delicious side dish. Reply

Really the best The first part is the same.
When the carrots are tender, add heavy cream just to cover, chopped garlic, herbs (I use marjoram or oregano), and simmer until the cream reduced to a thick sauce. Reply

Tzimmes Seems a little over he top to me. Diced carrots, honey & cinnamon. Mix thoroughly in a casserole and bake in a 325 degree oven for 20 minutes to half an hour.

There you have it! Reply

Recipe I've always made it with prunes, potatoes and carrots, a little brown sugar and the pinapple crushed with juice. Delicious. Reply
