Tzimmes (Irene’s combination from several
Recipes in the Art of Jewish Cooking.)
Brisket or pot roast, optional.
1 lb. Dried fruit (prunes, apricots, etc.)
1 t. salt
3 carrots (in large chunks)
2 –3 yams, peeled and sliced
6 thin slices lemon or lime.
2 c. orange juice
Water or additional orange juice to cover.
If using meat, cut in chunks and brown it. Combine all ingredients, except lemon slices, in a large casserole or crockpot. Make sure there is enough liquid to nearly cover. Place lemon slices on top. Cover and bake at 325 to 350 for a long time (at least 3 hours.) or if using a crockpot cook for 6 hours or until yams are cooked.
