Turkish delight recipes
Turkish delight are small, fragrant cubes of jelly, usually flavoured with rosewater, orange flower water or citrus fruit juice and heavily dusted with icing sugar. The sweets are made by boiling sugar syrup and cornflour together slowly for several hours over a low heat; the result is a dense, sticky jelly. Turkish delight are served alongside coffee or tea in Middle Eastern households. Oils flavoured with cinnamon or peppermint are sometimes used as an alternative to rosewater.
