The Turkish Delight dates back to Ottoman Empire’s period. Over centuries, it has never changed in terms of its taste, content and the way it is produced and it kept its place in Turkish culture.
Turkish Delight has been produced in Turkey since 15th century, it had become known in Europe by an English excursionist in 18th century.
Turkish Delight has been made on honey plain flour and pectin (called as Kelle Sugar in 17th century) since the introduction of refined sugar and starch to the country. It’s still one of the most desired tastes of Turkey.
Nowadays, one can find Turkish Delight with hazelnuts, almonds and pistachio which makes the taste even better, but nothing beats the taste of Harem’s Delight.
This is the best Turkish Delight i have ever eaten in my life. I am not a fan of simple Turkish Delight but this one which has inside pieces of hazelnuts, pistachios and almonds it is the best.
