I used to dislike turkish delight, before I tried the real stuff (fresh, not from a box) a few years ago. I haven’t had any for ages, but walking past a huge block of fresh turkish delight being cut up, I had to sample some…wow – so good!
Very glutinous and sticky-sweet. Extremely fresh – it would have been made that morning, it was still warm. Full of sugar but terribly moreish. A measly $5 bought us a big rectangular slab of it cut up into fat powdery cubes. Delicious, it won’t last out today in this house! James had a piece and loved it. Here’s a cube of it – out of focus but you get the idea. As James would say, yummo! 🙂
