- (TSIM-mes) [Yiddish, from Swabian dialect] In Jewish cooking, a sweetened stew or casserole of meat or vegetables, fresh and dried fruits, etc., often served at the Jewish New Year. By extension, a fuss, hullabaloo, or uproar.We also had tzimmes made with prunes, carrots and beef, lots of sour cream and homemade horseradish so strong it brought tears to our eyes. —The New York Times, May 18, 1983.
