Tzimmes with 'Facon'

This tzimmes is designed to be served either as the main dish or as a side. I love the fact that there are many simanim in it (honey, apples, carrots, sesame seeds) incorporated. Enjoy for a truly sweet New Year!



  • 1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
  • 2 Macintosh apples
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or craisins
  • 6 ounces facon or beef fry
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 ounces honey
  • (optional) 2 ounces sesame seeds


On the stove top, bring the carrots and water to a boil. Lower to a simmer and add the apples and cranberries.  In a preheated oven, lay the facon on a baking sheet and drizzle honey on each slice, topping with sesame seeds (optional).

Bake at 350 for 15 mins, or until the edges are very dark. Turn off oven and let sit for additional 10 mins, so the meat crisps.

Strain the water from the apple mixture. Using kitchen shears, cut the facon into small pieces and add to the apple mixture. Scrape off the honey that is left over on the tray, and use a spatula to gently incorporate the meat and honey into the apple mixture. Best served immediately and hot.
