grated lemon zest
grated fresh ginger root
I made so many changes I wasn't sure whether to write a review or a new recipe! First, I used fresh orange juice and plenty of orange zest. I replaced the prunes with dried apricots, halved the butter, and added honey. Tasted very good and orange-y.
a bit sweeter than other recipes I've tasted
i added a handful of raisins (for my raisin loving guests) and added honey towards the end instead of more sugar. also a bit of nutmeg or cinnamon really brings out the flavors. but a great recipe to tweak! thanks :)
This has become a holiday staple in our house. We use dates instead of prunes. Very tasty and complements just about anything. Works as an appetizer, main veggie, or a dessert even. Have fun making it - it makes your house smell terrific!
Yum yum yum! Everone loved these and barely even knew they were eating veggies!
What an AMAZING tzimmes. When I was cooking it, it looked so uninspiring... but as that hour of simmering passed, my goodness, it starts to smell incredible. By the end it, it was just incredible. ONE SUBSTITUTION, ONE CHANGE: apricots instead of prunes, 2/3 the sugar.
In the picture, the carrots look sliced, but the recipe doesn't say. Any suggestions? and the prunes? dried apricots?
Only substituted raisins for the prunes and added nutmeg and cinnamon. Very tasty!
