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. Read More

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 :) Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More
