Classic Jewish tzimmes! A stew of carrots, sweet potatoes, dried fruit cooked in spices (and wine!) Y’all I feel like I say this every week, but I’ve been so busy! I was in Michigan for a wedding, and the off to Denver for a most epic Jewish food retreat ever. And then I rested for exactly one day in the fetal position before it was ACL! Oy. To say I need a hug and a solid nap right now is an understatement. While I don’t have time for all that, I do have time for tzimmes.
What’s tzimmes? It’s the food equivalent of a warm blanket, snuggly puppy, hefty glass of wine and Real Housewives of New York marathon. Totally comforting.
I promise you posts on the food retreat soon, but for now, here is a little pic from ACL. Totally unnaturally edited. Have you been to a music festival before? ACL is amazing, but one day is my limit. 🙂 (Pun intended.)
Back to the tzimmes. There are many ways to make it, but I like mine with lots of dried fruit, sweet potatoes, carrots, and a cinnamony white wine sauce. Oh yeah.
Serve with brisket for the most epic Jewy meal ever. I like leftovers over yogurt or oatmeal for breakfast. Trust me on this.
It’s easy, just sweet enough, and screams fall. What more could you want?
I partnered with Imperial Sugar on this post, but all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting WJWE!
