Turkish delight is another great memory from my childhood and if anyone offer me Turkish delight, I would not say no. Unlike my husband who does not like Turkish delight at all. Almost like liquorish sweets, either you like them or not. The same with Turkish delight. I have also once made a lovely Turkish delight cake from a recipe I found in a lovely baking magazine special edition. The cake was beautifully decorated with white and light pink Turkish delight, as well as light pink and white rose petals. A lovely idea for a ladies high tea occasion. Turkish delight is from Lokum, Persia originated and the most popular flavours are lemon, rosewater and orange. Here in South- Africa you find mostly lemon and rosewater. In some occasions also some rose water pink ones coated in chocolate. By writing this article now, I am now very hungry for Turkish delight! When buying turkish delight, the red box of Beacon are my favourite! You can be very creative when making gifts and place them in beautifully decorated CONSOL Jars and also a lovely flat box is a good idea. If you don’t have the perfect wrapping idea, Google can for sure be your friend with plenty of images, photos and ideas! Try out the Fudge as well.
