Tzimmes is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish sweet stew incorporating carrot, pineapple, honey and cinnamon.
Carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds (2 lbs)
Water, enough to cover
½ cup honey
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
Salt, to taste
2 - 3 Tbsp butter
1 ½ cups pineapple, diced
1. Add the carrots, water, honey, lemon juice, 1 cup of diced pineapple, cinnamon and salt to a large saucepan and stir together.
2. Set the saucepan over medium-high flame and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
3. Remove cover and increase heat to medium-high. Boil to cook down the liquid until it forms a glaze on the carrots. Stir in the butter, adjust seasoning and serve.
4. Garnish with ½ cup diced pineapple.
