I really love the scent and the flavor of this candy. I've never experimented with rose water before, and I ready to use it in several more recipes! The turnout was beautiful and delicious. I added pistachios to the mix in the beginning. That worked well. Thanks for posting this.
I tried this recipe and was delighted with the result. Although, instead of 3 envelopes of Unflavoured Gelatine, I substituted Gelatine Leaves. It worked a treat. I will make some more and put it in a fancy box as a Christmas present.
I recently bought a small box of Turkish delight and thought it should be simple to make. This recipe was very simple and very successful. I used 3 Tbs rosewater as part of the water, 6 fresh mint leaves torn into quarters, 1 Tbs lime juice, and the zest of 1 lemon as the flavoring. I was trying to get the flavor of rose-lemon/lime-menthe. I infused the mint in the sugar/gelstin/water mixture as it was simmering. I tried to remove all the mint before chilling. A few small pieces remained, but they actually add to the flavor. I can taste each of the flavors I used. The amount of rosewater to use is really dependent upon the strength you are starting with. This was good if you like the rose, but I would reduce it to 2 Tbs if you want it to be a little more subtle. I didn't find a difference between using an oiled knife or the sharp paring knife, so I gave up on oiling the knife. I would definitely make this again!
Wow, I thought the Turkish Delight was really good. I had never tried it before in my life but it's really good. I ended up using 2 Tbls. of rose water. And then 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and it worked out well. And yes, the knife needs to be really sharp to cut the final product. I had to enlist in the help of my husband to cut it for me! Really good candy, will make it again sometime.
To me, this didn't quite meet my expectations as Turkish Delight. Nevertheless, it turned out to be a wonderfully soft, chewy jelly candy that I colored a bright pink, flavored with cherry and almond extract and rolled in granulated sugar. I will be making this again.
How easy is this receipe?!!! I was amazed at how well this turned out - and all with minimal effort on my part! I will make this again and again - thanks for a great recipe. I made this as gifts for my family and they all raved about it.
I made this with my daughter for a Christmas present for her teachers everybody loved it it was amazing
These were great! I made them for a book themed baby shower (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe). I used lime zest, lemon juice, and about 1 tbsp of rose water and coloured them pink for the baby girl. Thanks!
DD (toddler) like this. I used vegan gelatin from the health food store which didn't mix in properly and some bits were harder than others which were more of a gel. I used sea salt, 2 tbs Iranian rose water (superior than others) that seemed to have the flavour simmer out over the 10 minutes, freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon rind, white sugar I powdered in my spice mill/coffee grinder to be corn free, plus the water and I did not use any colouring.
i am waiting for my batch of lokoom to set as i write this... i kept wondering how i would keep the sugar from burning without stirring... turns out if you start out and maintain the heat on super-low it is possible... however, after having it on super-low for a long while and not seeing any boiling action, i cranked it to medium and ended up with burnt sugar at the bottom of my pot, which i tried not to disturb in order to keep it from tainting the whole batch... i will update this and actually put up the stars tomorrow... i really hope i managed to save the end product, or that it is at least a good enough result to convince me to make a second attempt...
