Serves 8.

Traditionally served on Rosh Hashana, tzimmes may include brisket of beef, sweetpotatoes, potatoes, farfel, prunes and other dried fruit, carrots or apples – all flavored with honey and often cinnamon. This casserole-style dish is cooked at very low heat so the flavors have a chance to blend.


5 medium North Carolina sweetpotatoes
1/2 pound dried plums (prunes), whole or bits
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1/4 cup apple juice
salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Peel sweetpotatoes and slice in wedges.

Combine with dried plums in a large baking dish and sprinkle with sugar, lemon juice, stock, apple juice and salt and pepper.

Toss to distribute seasonings and coat sweetpotatoes.

Cover and bake for 1 to 2 hours, until sweetpotatoes are softened.

Add more liquid if necessary to keep moist.
