Tzimmes meets all the requirements for the new year: it’s sweet, it’s made with honey and it’s festive!



Grate the carrots and ginger, add the half-cut and pitted dates, sprinkle with salt, and then simmer in the oil over a high flame. If the carrots aren’t too fresh, add half a cup of water. Sprinkle in the spices and pour in the honey as well. Then, add in the pomegranate seeds as well. Anyone who likes it can also add raisins. You can also sprinkle in some walnuts, and toast it for another 15 minutes.


This is a simpler version of the original Persian recipe and one of the most flavorful ways to use the delicious autumn and winter fruit for a tasty and festive meal that is both paleo and gluten free.
