Recipe: Sweet Potato Tsimmes

from The White House

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • Half pound to one pound each of dried apricots and pitted prunes 
  • 3 sliced lemons

1. Peel sweet potatoes and cut in eighths to fill a 10" x 12" baking dish.

2. Add dried fruit.

3. Squeeze lemons.

4. Add juice and rinds with the other ingredients and toss together.

5. Add about a quarter inch of water.

6. Cover tightly with tin foil and cook at 350 degrees for about 1-1/2 hours, or until soft.

7. DO NOT STIR -- when you turn the tzimmes out into a bowl, liquid will glaze the tops.
