    I found the end product to have a strong gelatine taste and the flavours a little too subtle. The texture is very different to other turkish delight I have eaten also.

  • I really liked this recipe

    I really liked this recipe but it did seep not long after I had coated it in the icing sugar mixture.   Would I store this in the fridge?   I didn't have the essence but used pure rose water and I used 3 tablespoons of the rosewater.

    I wish to add that this recipe was taken from Lola Workmans' book - The Multi-Allergy cookbook. It is also gluten free!
