Make your own Turkish delight and pretend you're on a sunny Turkish holiday!
What did I do wrong?!! I measured out the ingredients down to the last gram and followed the instructions exactly but the mixture wouldn't thicken in the saucepan nor it did thicken in the tin as it cooled!! I tried the mixture anyway but it was horribly sweet. Definitely not a recipe I will try again. (nearly ruined my saucepan too!) - 07 Sep 2012
Like the review 'goonies' I followed the recipe to the letter, even managing to get a very thick syrup have heated it to the correct temperature. I poured it into the correct size tin and left it to set in a cool bedroom. 24 hours later it still hadn't set. I had intended to make this for Christmas. I'm so glad I didn't. For the time, effort and cost of the ingredients it was absolutely not worth it - 17 Dec 2012
Brilliant recipe if you're stuck for time, and simpler than the traditional method for making Turkish Delight. I made these in 40 minutes before I went to work, left them out to cool during the day and cut them up in the evening. People, buy shelled pistachios! - it's not worth the hassle of opening so many! Will definitely make again. - 22 Dec 2011
