Pineapple Tsimmes


Jewish, Canadian, and all about food: MAZON Canada has a lot in common with Second Helpings, Please! This iconic cookbook has guided us through wholesome, old-fashioned cooking since it was first self-published in 1968 by a Montreal chapter of B’nai Brith Women of Canada. It is finally back in print after a decade! Carrots symbolize more (mehr) – our wish for ourselves and the vulnerable among us. Here is a simple delicious recipe for this traditional New Year Dish, courtesy of Norene Gilletz, the editor and long-time Mazon supporter:


  • 15oz. tin pineapple, crushed or tidbits
  • 2 tbsp. butter or chicken fat
  • 4-5 lb. cooked sliced carrots
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar

    Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Place a layer of carrot rounds in a greased casserole. Top with a layer of pineapple. Dot with butter or chicken fat and brown sugar. Repeat until all ingredients are used up. Pour reserved juice over casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 12 servings.
