Print this Recipe    Lokum (Turkish Delight)

Yield: 6 servings

2 1/2 cup water
4 cup sugar
1 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup grape juice or orange juice
1 ts cream of tartar

few drops red food coloring (optional)
oil
powdered sugar

Bring the water to a boil, add the sugar and stir until thoroughly
dissolved. Mix the cornstarch with the juice and cream of tartar.
Gradually pour into the boiling syrup, stirring constantly. Continue
cooking for 20 min, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Add
food coloring. Oil a 7" square cake pan with sides 1 to 1 1/2"
high. Pour in the mixture and let stand until cool and set. Cut
into 1" squares. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.

It takes a bit of trial and error to gauge when the lokum mixture
is ready. If it boils too long it will turn out hard like toffee,
and if it is too soft it will not keep its shape when cool. It
should feel soft but firm after cooling.
