Since I named this blog ATzimess, I thought it would be a nice “home” warming gift to all of you if I posted my favorite Tzimmes recipe.  This is my Grandmother’s recipe and the only one I really enjoy.  It is not a sweet Tzimmes, but a savory one. I have never heard of anyone else making this type of Tzimmes.  Try it, you may like it!

Grandma Silver's Tzimmes



4 large Potatoes

1 large Onion; peeled

1 large Egg

1 heaping tablespoon Flour (or Matzah Meal)

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Pepper to taste

1 tablespoon Oil


2 pounds Carrots

1 Sweet Potato or Yam

1 pinch Sugar

1 Stalk Celery

1 tablespoon Flour

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Pepper to taste


First make a batter for potato kugel: 

Grate 4 potatoes, with 1 onion. 
Drain. Add egg, flour (or Matzah Meal), oil, salt & pepper to taste. 
Mix well.

Pour into 8x8 inch GREASED pan (I like to make the kugel in a 
disposable aluminum pan) and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.

Meanwhile, peel and wash carrots. Cut into chunks. Wash celery and cut 
into chunks. 

Peel and wash 1-2 Sweet Potatoes or Yams. Cut into chunks. Pour into 
9x13 inch pan and put in just enough water to barely cover. 

Add flour, sugar, and salt and pepper after vegetables are soft. Then 
pour partially baked potato kugel on top. Continue baking for another 
15 minutes or until the kugel is done, but not brown on top. 

Take the Tzimmes out of the oven and pour mixture into a large bowl. 
Mash everything together with potato masher.
