TURKISH DELIGHT IN TURKEY
Lokum,Turkish delight, is a traditional sweet made of sugar and starch. It is believed that the production goes back to the XVth century and it achieved its final recipe during the XIXth century.
Formerly honey and condensed must were used together with flour for its consistency. When the importation of sugar was initiated at the end of the XIXth century, it became the basical ingredient for the lokum confection and later the flour was also replaced by wheat starch.
Today the ingredients of lokum are certain amounts of sugar, corn starch and water, boiled for a certain time, together with some fruits or nuts or any other flavour. The cooking time differsbetween 1 to 2 hours, depending onthe size of the boiler.
The thick substance is then poured into special wooden trayssprinkled with corn starch; it is also sprinkled on top. It stands from 24 to 48 hours until it gets cool and has a flexible consistency. Then the starch is brushed off, it is sprinkled with powdered sugar and cut up into small cubes.
Apart from the plain lokum, there exists a great variety with fruits such as strawberries, cherries, lemon or orange, with nuts such as pistachios, walnuts or almonds, and other flavours such as mastic, vanilla, coconut, mint, milk cream or rose water. In the provinces, there are many other local types of lokum.
HOT TIP : Don't buy any Turish Delights from the Airport or anywhere ready packed. If you are going to visit Fethiye ,usually on Tuesdays for the Market Tour with a Local agencys,they stop at the Turkish Delight factory , this is the place you want to go if you after totally fresh sweets.
