Original Ingredients of Turkish DelightTurkish delight was originally formed using honey and molasses as sweeteners, water and flour as binding agents, flavoured with rosewater, lemon peel, bitter orange and coloured red, yellow and green.
Introducing to EuropeKnown as Lokum in Turkish, it was introduced to Western Europe in the 1800s by an unknown British person who became very fond of this sweet delicacy whist visiting
Turkish Delight TodayToday this delicious sweet consists of a gel made with starch and sugar, and the finest Turkish delight is made binding the gel with chopped dates, hazelnut, walnuts or pistachios and the more traditional varieties are just gel flavoured with rosewater, mastic, bergamot, orange or lemon.
Turkish delight is eaten in small cubes dusted with icing sugar, dried coconut or powdered cream of tartar, which prevent them from sticking together when packaged into boxes.
