Turkish Delight, also known as lokum
Turkish Delight, also known as lokum, most likely originated in turkey in the 1700’s. Part of the family of confections that use a mixture of starch, like flour or cornstarch, and sugar, it’s usually flavored with a bit of rose water, orange or lemon. However, variations can include chopped pistachios, hazelnuts, walnuts or dates. The candy is usually cut into small cubes and individually wrapped. It is said that candy like Turkish Delight, with its gummy interior, was the early precursor of the modern jelly bean.
