A wonderful accompaniment for a Passover Feast, feeds 20
1/3 cup olive oil
2 1/2 cups chopped onions
8 large carrots, sliced
2 1/2 cups pumpkin, peeled and diced
3 large apples or pears, cored and sliced
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 1/4 cups orange juice
1 T. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. salt (or to taste)
Preheat the oven to 350º F.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the onions over medium heat until they are translucent.
Add the carrots and pumpkin and continue to sauté until golden.
In a mixing bowl, combine the onion-carrot mixture with all the remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
Transfer the mixture to a large, oiled, shallow baking dish (a round or oval shape is attractive).
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the top begins to turn slightly crusty.
