Method
Rose Turkish Delight

Step 01

Pour water into a pan and add gelatin leaves, breaking the leaves in half. Leave the gelatin to bloom for about 5 minutes, and then place the pan on low heat. Stir gently until the the gelatin melts.
Step 02
Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Increase heat and bring mixture to a boil, before reducing heat. Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
Step 03
Remove the pan from heat. Stir in rose water and food colouring until it is pale pink. Wet a small square tin with cold water before pouring in the rose syrup. Leave in a cool place to set overnight.
Step 04
Sift the icing sugar and corn flour together onto a plate. Ease the set Turkish delight out of the tin onto the icing sugar mixture.
Step 05
Cut into squares, and coat with the icing sugar mixture. This can be kept and stored for up to one week.

Swap rose water with orange zest for a tangy flavour!
