Cooking Turkish Delight:

Step 1: Prepare the juice and zest of lemon and orange.

Rinse lemon and orange thoroughly with running hot and then cold water, then dry with a towel. On a fine grater, rub the zest (skin) of orange and lemon. Then cut the fruit in half, pour boiling water over them and squeeze the orange and lemon juice into separate bowls.

Step 2: Step 2: Boil orange and lemon juice with powdered sugar.

In a cauldron, mix orange and lemon juices, add zest, powdered sugar, and pour half a glass of cold water. This mixture must be cooked over low heat until the powder dissolves. Sugar crystals will appear on the stacks of the cauldron, they need to be swept down with a special brush. Cook this mass for about 5 minutes (it should not be disturbed).

Pour gelatin in ½ cup of water, to speed up the dissolution process, it can be placed in a bowl of hot water, starch should also be dissolved in ½ cup of water and stir. After a while, they will dissolve (after 15 - 20 minutes).

Pour dissolved gelatin and starch into the sweet mixture, mix well with a wooden spoon, add peppermint essence, food coloring. It is necessary to boil this mass until a bright glossy color. 2 minutes before the end of cooking, you need to prepare the form, covering it with foil, which is greased with butter. In the prepared form, lay out the sweet mass evenly, cover with foil and send to the refrigerator for 12 hours.

This fabulous sweetness will be an excellent dessert both in the afternoon and at any celebration. Good appetite!

- - Turkish delight can be made not only from lemon and orange, but also from other berries and fruits: strawberries, raspberries, cherries (seedless), apples, etc.

- - Marmalade called rahat-lokum will be very tasty if, during the cooking of the syrup, add 2 - 3 tablespoons of honey (liquid) to it.
