Beet Tzimmes

I found a fantastic use for Gold's Borscht, it makes a flavorful base for the traditional sweet potato and carrot tzimmes. To be honest I never liked tzimmes, much, but I hadn't had it a while and maybe my tastes have changed or this is just that good, but I love this side dish, perfect addition for Rosh Hashanah or Passover.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 5 min




  • 1 pound large carrots
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup dried dates
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 jar Gold's Borscht


Peel and cut carrots and sweet potatoes.  Place in a 9×13 pan.  Layer dried cherries, apricots and dates over top.  Drizzle honey all around and sprinkle cinnamon and orange zest.  Pour borscht including beet pieces over top and bake uncovered for 60 minutes.  Enjoy hot.
