Türk Lokumu (Turkish Delight)

Spice Bazaar, Istanbul – Eaten in small cubes and dusted with powdered sugar, this delicious Turkish confection is based on gel formed by starch and sugar. It is traditionally flavored with rose water, mastic, bergamot, orange, or lemon.

Premium varieties consist of chopped pistachios, hazelnuts, walnuts, or dates. I bought one covered with saffron and another with rose petals. Yum!
