Turkish delight recipe. Turkish delight is a classic jelly favorite. For a very special gift, package these home-made treats nicely in a little box with a ribbon wrapped around. These firm jelly sweets are usually dusted with a mixture of icing sugar and cornflour but if you so wish, you may rather dip them in chocolate.

These delights were first made in a sweet shop in Istanbul, Turkey. People wrapped them in lace handkerchiefs and presented them as gifts. Make half with rose water and half lemon-flavored.
