Soft, Sweet, Glazed Carrots for the Jewish New Year
Tzimmes is a traditional recipe for Jewish New Year – slow cooked, very sweet glazed carrots. The dish represents the wish for a sweet (honey) and prosperous (the carrot ‘coins’) new year. It is served as a side dish and sometimes is cooked with dumplings and prunes in it.
This is a beautiful and simple version!
My Aunty Myrna was the most wonderful cook, renowned for many delicious sweet and savoury dishes. One of her greatest joys was to cook for us, and ply us with copious amounts of her fabulous food. She passed away several years ago and I wish I had spent more time with her in the kitchen, learning her secrets.
This is one recipe that she shared with me, and would make for us each year on Rosh Hashanah. It has now become one of the Monday Morning Cooking Club favourites!
