From Dorothy McNett's REcipe book at www.dorothymcnett.com. The actual word tzimmes means to make a fuss over someone or something. It is the sense of the word that gives this dish its name, a lot of things mixed together.
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In oven safe casserole or pan, heat the oil and then cook the onion, stirring and cooking until light brown. Set the meat on top of the onions, and then arrange the carrots, potatoes, and prunes around the sides. Spoon the honey over, sprinkle with lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Pour over enough water just to cover the meat. Cover the pot and bring to a boil on the range, and then put in oven for 4 hours. To serve, slice meat and arrange vegetables around. Drizzle with any remaining juices.
