There’s so much talk & many blog post floating around about Easter so I thought I would give some attention to Passover. It’s a Jewish holiday that commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. It’s celebrated with a seder, which is a ritual feast that starts the holiday. I don’t observe Passover but I’ve been invited to many seders by friends.
I thought I would post a recipe of one of the dishes that I had during passover. It’s a sweet carrot stew that incorporates dried fruit. Tzimmes can be really sweet, so I changed it up slightly to give it a little less sweetness. Although it’s considered a stew, I more or less roasted the veggies.
Besides carrots which is always in the recipe, I added sweet potatoes. The fruit I decided to use were dried cherries & prunes which are traditional to the dish. With the help of some brown sugar & honey, the dish got it’s sweetness. This makes a great side dish with any roasted meat, whether your Jewish or not.
