Turkish Delight

Hi, y'all. I missed knitting & blogging last week due to a little remodeling we're having done. SIL was our resident carpenter, so Youngest was here all week long. We had a nice long visit & time for a few interesting projects, too. One of them was making Turkish Delight. If you haven't heard of it, it's a very delicate, rosewater flavored Turkish candy. It's become hugely popular recently because it was mentioned in the movie, Narnia. Youngest had brought some rosewater with her that she'd made from her rose blossoms & wanted to try her hand at making a batch. So, I stood back & took pictures while she did all the work. ;)
Here's a picture of one of the cooking stages:
All done & poured into a pan to set overnight:
Turned out of the pan & cut into squares:
Dusted with confectioner's sugar:
It turned out very well I think. Placed in an air-tight container, ready to be enjoyed. Go ahead, try some. :)
Have a Turkish-ly Delight-ful week, Y'all!
