   slices. Place them around the meat.  Add prunes, apricots and lemon slices.

   Add orange juice to boiling water.  Combine brown sugar and flour and add
   enough water to make a thin paste.  Add this paste to the orange juice
   mixture. Pour over the Tzimmes.  If necessary, add more boiling water to
   bring liquid to the top of the tzimmes.   Cover. Bake at 400 degrees for 1
   hour.  Reduce heat to 325 F. and continue baking 4 1/2 hours.  Uncover and
   bake 30 minutes longer.
