Delicate rose scented jellies of lusciousness are easier to make at home than you might think!
Turkish Delight is one of those exotic classics that is a real people pleaser. Check out how easy it is to make at home!
Start by ensuring you have greased & lined a slice tray with baking paper to get prepared.
Grab your medium saucepan & into that pop 3 cups of water before sprinkling 4 tablespoons of gelatine powder on top & then adding 1.5 cups of caster sugar. Place that over a medium heat & whisk with a wire whisk until it comes to the boil & everything is dissolved nicely.
Let that simmer away for 2 minutes before taking it off the heat.
Next, mix 3/4 cup of Arrowroot (Tapioca Flour) into 1/2 cup of cold water then pour it in a steady stream into the hot mixture whilst whisking constantly. This will thicken it up.
Add in 1 tablespoon of Rose Water Essence – this is what gives Turkish Delight it’s unique flavour & heavenly scent.
Now, that is the recipe done, but what colour do we all associate Turkish Delight with???? PINK! So pop a drop or two of pink food colouring into the mixture & stir it all up nicely. You could use other colours if you want to get tricky.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tray & pop that lot in the fridge overnight to set.
The next day, turn out the slab of jelly goodness onto your chopping board & slice into delicate morsels of lusciousness before dusting in icing sugar.
