This was a first for me. The only thing I know about Turkish Delight I learned from reading about Narnia. Relatively speaking, this was pretty easy. This is from Annie Rigg’s Gifts From the Kitchen.
It’s mostly sugar and gelatin and cornstarch. I know, it doesn’t really sound appetizing to me either. It doesn’t get much better when you add the rose water. I thought it was like chewing perfume. Back to the cornstarch: for a minute there I thought I had made paste.
It got a little better once it dissolved and I added the food coloring.
Those are pistachios floating around in there too. Once it’s completely set and sprinkled with sugar it looked a little better.
As if this little box wasn’t cute enough.
I had to use some of my new paper tape.
All in all, this was an interesting experience, but not one I need to repeat.
Eat Well and Savor.
