Sticky and Sweet

This is a photo of a confection called Loukoumi in Greek. Many may know this as Turkish delight. The flavor in this photo is rose which I absolutely love. I am a bit under the weather since the weather has been so crazy. One day it’s warm and the next (yesterday and today) it is snowing and raining. So things on the blog will be a little slow. Hope you are having a better day than me :)—-CMY

    I want to find out where to get Turkish Delight, I remember it from the movie The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, but I’ve never seen it here in the US. Is there a recipe for it?

      I do not have a recipe for it but you can find them at Greek food markets. I go to Meditaranean foods in Astoria Queens. They have house brand and commercial types. The one in the photo is a commercial brand. The house brand is much much better. So is their house brand yogurt it is super thick and tangy. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment 🙂

    I had some of that Turkish delight some years ago and I still remember it every time I think about a good snack. 🙂 Too bad it’s not available where I live now.
