Turkish delight, also known as lokum, is a sweet made of a flavouring (traditionally rose, vanilla, pistachio or orange), sugar syrup, nuts and dried fruit bound together with mastic (gum arabic). According to legend, turkish delight was developed by one of the Ottoman sultans to appeal to the hundreds of women in his harem. The recipe, virtually unchanged for the past 500 years, proved an overwhelming success and this unique confectionery has become a sweet revered around the world.
