Tzimmes III (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: "MealLeaniYUMM!" by Norene Gilletz

Serves: 10

3/4 cup pitted prunes
3/4 cup dried apricots
1/3 to 1/2 cup raisins
2 pounds (1kg) carrots, peeled and sliced
1 sweet potato or yam, peeled, quartered and sliced
1/2 cup honey (to taste)
14 ounce (398ml) can pineapple chunks, drained (reserve 1/2 cup juice)
1/2 cup orange juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tsp. pareve tub margarine
1 tsp. cinnamon

Soak prunes, apricots, and raisins in boiling water to cover for 1/2 hour, until plump. Drain well.

Meanwhile, cook carrots and sweet potato in boiling water until tender but firm, about 15 minutes. Drain well. Combine reserved pineapple juice with remaining ingredients except pineapple chunks; mix gently. Place mixture in a sprayed 3-quart casserole.

Bake covered in a preheated 350#&176;F oven for 35 minutes. Stir in pineapple chunks and bake uncovered 15 minutes more, basting once or twice.

Poster's Notes:
In Yiddish, a tzimmes means much ado about nothing. This colorful, vitamin-packed tzimmes is really something! It's not only full of fiber, beta carotene, and potassium, it tastes terrific.
