Tzimmes from The New Yiddish Kitchen

By: Simone Miller and Jennifer Robins

Serves: 4 / Simanim: Carrots, Honey

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds (900 g) rainbow carrots (about 10 carrots)
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 8 ounces (240 ml) chicken broth
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) olive oil
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup (60 g) dried cranberries, optional

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Clean, peel and coarsely chop the rainbow carrots. If you cannot find rainbow carrots, regular orange carrots will work too.

In a mixing bowl combine orange juice, broth, onion powder, garlic, honey, sea salt, olive oil and black pepper.

In a casserole dish, place chopped carrots on the bottom and then pour the broth mixture over the top.

If desired, you can now add in cranberries. Cover with a lid, or foil, and bake for 2 h
