Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 2½ quart baking dish with cooking spray. Lightly spray one side of a piece of aluminum foil cut to cover dish with cooking spray. Insert 4-mm slicing blade in a Cuisinart® Prep 11 Plus Food Processor. Arrange the sweet potatoes upright in the large feed tube. Use firm pressure to slice. (Slices will look like half moons.) Repeat until all of the sweet potatoes are sliced. Remove to a large mixing bowl. Stir in carrots, apples, apricots, plums and raisins. Insert metal blade in Cuisinart® Prep 11 Plus™ Food Processor. Place orange and apple juices, melted butter, honey, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in work bowl. Process to blend, 15 seconds. Pour over vegetable and fruit mixture; stir to blend. Transfer the fruit and vegetable mixture to the prepared baking dish. Spoon all liquid over top. Cover with foil. Stir Tzimmes once or twice while baking. Bake until all vegetables are tender, about 60 minutes. Remove foil cover and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes to thicken juices. Serve hot.
