Loukoumia #2: Turkish delight done right!

Loukoumia version 2.0.  Yep, this time I remembered to put the sugar in. If you don’t know what I’m talking about check yesterday’s post. Same recipe but I doubled the ingredients. If I’m to spend almost an hour stirring the mix, it’d better be worth my time. So, here’s Vicky’s recipe once more, doubled.



  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 10  strawberries pulped
  • confectioner’s sugar

How to make: Combine the water, corn flour, sugar, lemon juice in pan and stir vigorously, high heat, until a transparent thick mixture is formed. About 5 minutes. Add the fruit, lower the heat to medium and continue stirring for another half an hour or so until the texture looks like this (Viky’s photo).  Don’t stop the cooking too soon or the mix will be too soft. Be sure it get to a point that it detaches the bottom of the pot easily as one piece. Put the mix on a flat surface, sprinkled with corn flour, and let it cool. When it’s cool, turn it upside down so it’s covered with corn flour. Cut into pieces and cover with confectioner’s sugar.
