Tzimmes is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish sweet stew typically made from carrots and dried fruits such as prunes and apricots, which is often combined with other root vegetables. The name may come from the Yiddish words tzim (for) and esn (eating), but another interpretation comes from the fact that “To make a big tzimmes over something” is a Yinglish expression that means to make a big fuss; perhaps because of all the slicing, mixing, and stirring that go into the preparation of the dish! Despite the peeling, slicing, and stirring, we think you’ll find thisTzimmes to be well worth the time and effort.
