"My honey's request for this year's Seder: short ribs in a sweet root vegetable stew, sweetened with honey and prunes. Can be made vegetarian without the meat, or substitute stew meat of choice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I found a 3 lb bag of prunes in my pantry that I didn't know what to do with, so I went a-huntin' for prune cooking. I have no idea what a tsimmes is, but holy hannah it's sweet. Like, sweeter then anything I have ever made for desert. I have looked at a few other recipes for tsimmes and it seems like they are all very sweet, so maybe that is what it is supposed to be like? Either way, it was good. I used 3 large sweet potatoes instead of 4 and it was still a LOT OF SWEET POTATOES! It filled my crock pot as full as it has ever been. I would use only 2 next time. I would also leave out the honey. Those prunes and the sweet potato are so sweet already, you don't need the honey! The cloves were delicious, and the ribs turned out to DIE for. Unfortunately, due to the sweetness we will likely just pick out the meat and not enjoy the stew. Thank you for such an interesting recipe!
