Subbed crushed almonds for the pistachios (didn't have any) and reduced the orange extract to 3 teaspoons. Everything worked very well...the nuts were fine and the candy had a lovely, subtly orange flavor. The only thing that might be considered less than 100% positive is that the candy was extremely sticky in the pan (which was non stick) and very difficult to remove completely once it had cooled. I don't know if a spritz of cooking spray would be in order or not, but WILL be used the next time we make this.

This was the first Turkish delight recipe I tried that actually worked (!). I didn't like the taste as much...but I was just happy it wasn't an unameable consistancy!!! I omitted the pistachios and I found that it was too sticky to take out of the pan after it was chilled so I took a very sharp knife and cut the candy into squares, powdered my hands with powdered sugar, and basically peeled the candy out of the pan. (It was tough and did not come apart.) My younger siblings LOVED it...but I wasn't very impressed.

The last turkish delight recipe I tried required you to pour the syrup through a sieve to strain the zest cooked into it (which was nearly impossible and very messy). It was such a relief to find and make this recipe, which was much easier and tasted great!

This was great! I made it in honor of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was delicious, and everybody loved it. Only thing...I used a pot that I figured was okay in size...the liquid only came halfway. When I started to simmer it it boiled over like crazy...so next time I'll use a much larger pot. :) also, the cooling took quite a few hours. Other than that it was brilliant.

I screwed this one up when I made it, and it was still good! It's very unusual.

I made this and it was great! Even my BF liked it and normally he doesn't like things with a texture like this.
