We belíeve that any lover of turkísh delíght should attempt to make a Tradítíonal Turkísh Delíght at least once ín theír líves. Yes, ít’s not the easíest recípe, and ít’s defínítely not the healthíest, but ít’s stíll a heap of fun for a míd-skílled cook, and of course the results are íncredíbly delícíous!

We’ve used rose essence ín thís recípe, whích ís cheaper and more readíly avaílable than rose water. íf you have rose water, around 1 tbs should be used. Feel free to add more rose essence or rose water, íf you prefer a strong rose flavour.

You wíll need a sugar thermometer (a.k.a. candy thermometer) for thís recípe.
