Turkish Daylights: Turkish Delights
Turkish delights, lokum in Turkish, are cube-shaped sweets consisting of gel, starch and sugar flavoured with rosewater or fruit essences. They exist in multiple varieties that may contain pieces of pistachio, hazelnuts, pommegranade seeds, dried figs or other delicacies. They may be sprinkled with coconut grater or dusted with icing sugar. I particularly recommend chocolate covered pistachio lokum. A palate’s dream!
Have you ever tried lokum? Which one’s your favourite?
