    This made a different textured turkish delight, probably because of the use of gelatine. The texture was slightly on the chewier side, as opposed to softly melting in your mouth with slight chewing (hard to explain). The flavour was lovely, not too sweet & cloying (probably because the lemon I used was large) and complimented the nuts well (I used fresh walnuts). I think for me it was the texture that was the difference between 4 & 5 stars - unfortunately that day I had had some artisan turkish delight that wasn't made with gelatine, so I think that was the difference. This is still a great recipe though, and I would make it again. It was surprisingly easy & it was hard not to sample some of it as it firmed. Thanks!
