This Tzimmes recipe is a family favorite. It was given to my mother from our neighbor and dear friend, Bella Raksin. When I think of Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot these sweet candied carrots are the first thing that come to mind. Enjoy them over creamy mashed potatoes or along with crispy potato kugel.

1 teaspoon cooking oil
4 to 6 carrots, thinly sliced into rounds
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
Dash of salt

Cook carrots in oil for 15 minutes. Add honey, sugar, orange juice and salt to pot. Combine well and and cook over low flame for an hour, stirring every so often so it doesn’t stick to pot. Optional, add 2 slices pineapple (or 1/4 cup pineapple chunks) and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
