Salep Drink

Salep Drink
Salep is a type of flour or powder that is made from the tubers of orchid flowers that contain a nutritious starch like substance and was one of the most popular beverages during the times of the Ottoman Empire.

Its popularity spread to England and Germany before tea and coffee were introduced and later became an alternative drink in the coffee houses. During the 17th and 18th centuries in England it was known as “saloop” and was prepared by adding water to the salep powder until it thickened and would then be sweetened with orange or rose water, and the British went on to substitute Turkish orchids with a variety known as ‘dogstones’.

Today the beverage is made with hot milk instead of water and sometimes flavoured with cinnamon.  It is also used to make desserts such as salep pudding and salep ice cream and the main region it comes from in Turkey is Kahramanmaras .
