Turkish delight is a great sugary jelly like sweet that is easy to make at home. This version uses orange flavourings and has pistachios in it.
I had to throw away the pan that I made this candy in - the recipe is ALL WRONG. After having this experience, I did some further research and found out that 1) you should oil your pan before putting the candy in 2) it should sit overnight in a refrigerator and 3) the author of this recipe neglects to mention that you have to simmer the sugar water mixture for one hour. If I had known this ahead of time, I would have prepared for it. - 30 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is really good and easy! One note: after adding the cornstarch, it never did get "very thick". It got thicker than it previously had been, but not anything close to what I'd call very thick. I thought I'd done something wrong and ruined it, but it set up just fine and everyone loved it. - 14 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Traditionally this is flavored with Rose Water, which is kind of hard to get in the States. Turkish Delight is very popular in Australia. I've always loved it, but it is definitely a acquired taste. If you can get the rose water, try that instead of the citrus flavoring. - 29 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
