Print this Recipe    Turkish Delight

generous 1/2 pint water
3 tablespoons orange juice
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 lbs sugar
1 oz gelatine
3 oz cornstarch
2-4 drops food coloring (optional)
icing (powdered) sugar

Combine the water, the orange and lemon juice and the sugar in a
heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat, taking care that
the sugar has dissoved before the boiling point is reached. Lower
the heat and boil the liquid very gently until it reaches 230 F.
Meanwhile, dissolve gelatine in a little hot water. Blend the
cornstarch with enough cold water to make a thin paste and add the
paste to the hot syrup, stirring constantly. Stir in the gelatine
and boil the mixture until clear, stirring occassionally. Add the
coloring, if used, and pour into an 8" cake tin. Set aside for at
least 24 hours.

Loosen the Turkish Delight in the tin and turn out on to a thick
layer of icing sugar. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar and cut
into 1 inch squares with a sharp knife. Coat each square with icing
sugar immediately.

Note: Rose water may be substituted for the orange and lemon juice.
