Chanukah, the festival of lights, is a fun holiday which of course includes many delicious foods. Traditionally, these dishes are fried or loaded up with lots of sweet sugar. This year we’re taking a healthier spin on some classic dishes, like Latkes and now a lower sugar version of Tzimmes. While Tzimmes would usually include brown sugar, bottled OJ and dried fruits, I like to use fresh OJ made in our juicer, omit the brown sugar and butter, opt for local honey, plus swap out high sugar dried fruits for fresh, fall favorite, cranberries. The cranberries’ natural tartness also allows for an overall less sweet flavor in this dish. Enjoy Tzimmes as a side dish or dessert. Happy Hanukkah!
