Beet Tzimmes

I found a fantastic use for Gold’s Borscht, it makes a flavorful base for the traditional sweet potato and carrot tzimmes. To be honest I never liked tzimmes much, but I hadn’t had it a while and maybe my tastes have changed or this is just that good, but I love this side dish, perfect addition for Rosh Hashanah or Passover.
