This recipe doesn't take much to prepare, it can be started reasonably early before dinner guests arrive and is rather hands off. The word tzimmes means "something mixed up" or "a big fuss or mess."

1-1/2 lb carrots peeled and sliced
3 T butter
1/2 t salt
1 c water
1/2 c raisins
1 c pitted prunes
6 T brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t cloves
1 T lemon juice
grated peel of one orange
2 T honey

Melt the butter and saute the carrots for 5 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for 2 hours. Uncover and continue to simmer for 20 minutes.
