This came from Eastern Europe with my Grandmother when she came here in 1910. It's basically a sweet stew usually made with meat but adapted to my vegetarian lifestyle.

3/4 c
sugar

1 lb
carrots
2 box

In bottom of dutch oven use 1/2 cup olive oil.
Spread sliced onion over bottom of dutch oven.

Sprinkle with sugar and salt.

Add prunes over carrot and potato mixture.
Add boiling water halfway up side of pot. You might have to add more as it cooks down. Give it all a good mix.
5
Cook on top of stove until mixture comes to a boil. Then put it into the oven and roast until the potatoes and carrots and prunes break down and become soft.

Make the motza ball mix and boil them in water (keep finished balls on the side).

Watch the water level because if it dries out too fast it will burn.
