“Tzimmes means "fuss" .. like making a tzimmes over a guest.. Grossingers was a Hotel in the Catskills of New York. Molly Grossinger's "The Art of Jewish Cooking" is my favorite cookbook. The dish is so good!!!! This recipe is basically verbatim ( i did change some directions to make them more clear)”
