Turkish Delight

When we were in the states several people asked us if they really eat Turkish Delight here. The answer is yes! In Turkish it is called Lokum, and it comes in several flavors. This plate is filled with Sade Lokum. Sade just means plain. This flavor is just sweet...kinda like honey. These are topped with hazelnuts, walnuts, and pistachios. There is also the plain with no topping on the right and a smaller one in the middle that is darker in color with a little stronger flavor.

Lokum also comes in several colors which are pistachio, various fruit, and rose flavors. Personally I like the plain the best!
