Turkish Delight


● 5 glasses of sugar
● 2 glasses of water
● 1/2 cup of starch
● Peel of 1 orange or lemon
● 2-3 drops of lemon or orange oil
● 4–5 Art. spoons of powdered sugar


Dissolve starch with 1 glass of cold water and stir well to avoid lumps. Pour sugar into the saucepan with the remaining water, stirring, bring to the boil and cook over medium heat for 15–20 minutes.

When the sugar syrup begins to boil strongly, pour in the starch solution, reduce the heat, put finely grated zest and, stirring constantly, boil until the mass thickens.

When the Turkish delight lags behind the walls of the dishes, add citrus oil, mix again and put the mass on a baking sheet filled with parchment paper. Align Turkish delight with a spoon moistened in cold water and let it cool for 4–5 hours. Slice Turkish delight into small cubes, roll in powdered sugar.
