I'm thinking of making it for xmas pressies.

the only recipe is for the rose one which I'd like to attempt. We went to a food fayre last week and they had the most amazing flavours, strawberry, coconut etc but they all looked really smooth so I am assuming they use essences rather than strawberry juice etc? Anyone know.

I have made it before but with um, orange flower water I think, it was about 10 years ago. Sorry.

I love it.

Here is a recipe that looks similar to the one I used. I would imagine that a decent quality producer would probably use flavour extracts rather than essences as they are natural.

I may try that one you know, I only found the rose ones. Thanks for that.

Lokum is what Turks call it.
I wouldn't bother making it. Why when you will never do it as well as they do?
