Turkish Delight!

We happened to be in CostPlus last night (which is one of those stores that sell little broken papier-mache monkeys that give you a moment's pause and the tiny little jars of jam and chutney that lurk in the dark recesses of your fridge for decades. They also sell tooth decay by the metric ton, so I wouldn't advise a trip to their candy aisles if you're having any doubts about the state of your enamel) and I was overjoyed to find that they are once again carrying Turkish Delight.

Besides having the distinction of being offered to Edmund by the Snow Queen in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Turkish Delight is just super good. Amazingly good. It's so good, in fact, that I'm not sure you deserve it.

What is Turkish Delight? It's a kind of firm gelatin, flavored traditionally with rose and lemon (or fruit) and covered in powdered sugar. Some varieties have pistachios or almonds in there as well, though I've never tried it with nuts. Doesn't that sound like the best thing ever?


Fine. More for me.
