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.

  • 1
    Peel white and sweet potatoes. Slice them into large chunks. Peel carrots and cut into chunks.

    Add potatoes on top of onions (both white and sweet), add carrots on top of potatoes. 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.
