Turkish Delight Problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I attempted to make a turkish delight following a recipe for which the final step is set the turkish delight in a fridge inside a clingfilm lined dish. The recipe was from Marcus Wareing's Nutmeg and Custard and involves about 550g of sugar and 15 minutes of simmering before adding gelatine.

 

The problem is that I cannot remove the turkish delight from the cling film as it is too sticky. Is the problem that I have made what is essentially a rose flavoured syrup, added gelatine and then gelatinised a syrup hence why I cannot remove it from the cling film. I am slightly disappointed because the flavour is delicious and I wanted to take it in for my work colleagues for Christmas.

 

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Best Wishes

 

Terence

Traditionally, Turkish Delight is always made with starch and candies set with gelatin are in the gummy bear family.  Did you oil the plastic wrap?  And is the candy set enough that it would hold its shape when cut (if it weren't stuck to the plastic?)  If so, you could try freezing it and seeing if that would get it to set enough for you to peel the plastic off, then you can choose to dust the cut pieces in a mixture of powdered sugar and cornstarch (2:1).

I made these today....I find that a silicone 9 x9 greased pan does the trick, you will not need anything else.
