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:)

Sorry about this one. Carrots never really got soft and it was way too thick.

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.

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!

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.

I HATE cooked carrots but not anymore! These are fantastic with ham. I made two minor changes: no sugar honey instead and added cinnamon.

I increase the servings to 12 portions and followed the quantities the recipe called for with a few changes: Instead of 4 cups orange juice I went with 3 1 cup of water. I added a teaspoon each of cumin and cinnamon and equal parts prunes and dried apricots. After simmering I had a fair amount of liquid left so I used a spider to remove carrots and fruit and then turned up the heat to reduce liquid to a syrup. It was delicious and will definitely make again.
