Cutting Turkish Delight

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've just made another jelly slab of turkish delight (this time Pink Grapefruit & Ginger) and want to try a different way in cutting it. Usually I just pull out my trusty pizza cutter though this time I want to try my circular 1 ½" biscuit cutter. Now, should I dust it in the powdered sugar/cornstarch mixture -or- should I oil it lightly with simple vegetable oil?

Either will work - the cornstarch sugar method will not change any flavours.

The oil method will leave some residue behind which may or/may not be evident.

 

For items without solid chunks I've seen a hot-wire jig used, but no solids.

It's usually preserved in confectioners sugar so I'd go that way.  Plus the oil would cause early spoilage.

 

How did you make it?
