Oy vey iz mir. Old-Harvest Casserole is THE silliest name I've heard for this classic Jewish dish. It's tzimmes. T-Z-I-M-M-E-S. That's it. There's no other name for it. It's pronounced "TSI" (TS, like the two Zs in "pizza." C'mon... you can do it. I believe in you.), followed by "mess," as in "The name 'Old-Harvest Casserole' is a hot mess.'" TSI-mess. Tzimmes. You're welcome.

This was really tasty. I subbed raisins for the prunes. The pineapple is the star of this dish.

Normally these don't have sweet potato..
