I want to learn to make these. Turkish Delight.
I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but Narnia... Had to try 'em.
We picked up a little sampler pack in Berkeley: Lemon, orange and rose. The rose is spectacular (and Cranky didn't care for it, so lucky me).
I couldn't tell you the manufacturer, because the store seems to have split up larger boxes and repackaged them. But (and honestly, the picture is so old, I sort of forget) I think the version in the photo was made in New Zealand, and I'm convincing myself without any proof that it was made by the person who crafted the Turkish Delight for the movie! It makes me feel so famous, almost like stealing a kiss from Mr. Tumnus. Six degrees of delectation.
I recently bought a couple hunks of the stuff from a local Middle Eastern restaurant. Shudder. It was so clearly made with artificial flavorings, and gaudily tinted with food color. So I must make my own.
The manufacturer of the handmade candies featured in the film dropped a comment over on Sam's long-ago post about making Turkish Delight (ooh, one degree closer), and says the true recipe doesn't use any gelatine. So I have gotten a free lesson from a master. And I did find a couple of recipes online from — Narnia nuts! (Not pistachios. I mean kooks.)
I'm getting over a little bug right now, but I'm going to finally tackle 'em.
This way for your num-nums.
