Turkish delight

My first recipe using my foodie ingredients is Turkish delight, and it's surprisingly easy:


oil for greasing
1 oz powdered gelatine
9 fluid oz (UK) water
4 tsp rose water
1 lb caster sugar
3-4 drops red food colouring
1tbsp icing sugar
1tbsp cornflour

 Mix the gelatine, water, rose water and sugar in a LARGE saucepan
Heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring continually.
 Bring to the boil without stirring and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
It will expand and you really do need a big pan!

 Remove from the heat and stir in the colouring.

Pour into a greased tin and leave for 24 hours.

Cut the turkish delight into cubes and cover in the combined icing sugar and cornflour.

Store in an airtight box
