Tzimmes (or Simmus)

Tzimmes is a traditional sweet potato and fruit dish served during passover. I think it makes a great holiday dish, and did quite well at Thanksgiving this year. It’s sweet, buttery, and mashed perfectly. With a little time, and patience you can have a great holiday dish!

What you’ll need:

  • 3lbs sweet potatoes, peeled, boiled and sliced
  • 2lbs McIntosh apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • spritz of lemon juice
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • sea salt

 

Pre-heat oven at 375. In a large heat-resistant bowl layer boiled sliced potatoes, salt, apples (pre-spritz with lemon juice), brown sugar, a few pats of butter, mini marshmallows and cinnamon. Repeat layer until you run out of potatoes and apples or until you get to the top of your bowl.

 

Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and mash with a hand masher.

Mashed Sweet Potato and Apply Mix

 

Set oven to broil. Transfer mashed mix to a rectangle shallow baking dish, and add a layer of large marshmallows. Return to oven and broil for 10 minutes or until marshmallows get golden. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes and serve.

Gnash On!
