Sweet Carrots and Prunes

Sweet Carrots and Prunes


1 person made this

This is my mother's take on tzimmes which is a Jewish dish usually eaten at Rosh Hashanah when it is traditional to eat sweet foods.


Serves: 6 

  • 375g pitted prunes
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup (125g) white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons matzo meal

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour10min  ›  Ready in:1hour25min 

  1. Place the prunes in a large saucepan and add water to barely cover while you peel and cut the potatoes and carrots. Add the potatoes, carrots, lemon juice and sugar to the water, bring to a boil and lower heat. Simmer the mixture until the carrots are very tender and the mixture is thick, about 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
  2. If a thicker tzimmes is desired, stir in the matzo meal and simmer an additional 30 minutes.
