Turkish delight


Turkish Delight is a treat I like to get from the shops every now and then, especially around Christmas. It was never something I would ever have considered making. I would not have known how to start. Then I saw a programme all about making sweets, and it showed you how to make Turkish Delight. It involved a lot of faffing, and at least an hour continuously stirring ingredients in a saucepan. Not really worth the effort when you can get it from the shop.

But then one day, I was looking through an old family cook book, and I saw a recipe saying 'Turkish Delight (quick method).

This version was far less time consuming, so I thought it worth a go, and the results were very tasty. The original recipe called for citric acid powder, but I could not find it in the shop, so used a lemon instead, and it worked just as well. I also changed a few of the flavours to suit my tastes. My version has quite a strong flavour, but if you want something less intense, simply reduce the amount of flavouring used.
