Laurie's Grandma's Tsimmes

Laurie's Grandmother's Tsimmes

2-3 medium to large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2-3 decent sized
carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
½ cup of pitted prunes
½ of a can of pineapple chunks
1/3 of a cup (approximately) of frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon of
cooking oil (expeller-pressed is better for you)
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
Cook carrots and sweet potatoes in boiling salted water, covered, until tender but still firm. (You can also steam them in the microwave – I used the same casserole dish that I cooked the whole recipe in. Add a little bit of water and check for doneness at three-minute intervals, stirring so they cook evenly.)
Put carrots and sweet potatoes into a baking or casserole dish. Add prunes, orange juice concentrate, pineapple chunks and cinnamon. Stir very gently. Dot the top of the dish with butter, then drizzle over some honey (the amount you use is to your preference) and some canola oil (ditto.)
Bake, covered, in a preheated oven at 350° for about 30 minutes. Bake uncovered for another 15-20 minutes. Or as Grandma used to say, cook until done.
