Are you Nuts for Jelly Candy


Recommended Posts

It just dawned on me.  I'm currently making apple leather...and the rolled bits look like some kind of fruit leather with thinly sliced nuts in it.  I could try sliced almonds in my next batch of apple leather.

Darienne, your apple leather does look like some of the Turkish Market candies, as well as a couple of Nicolai's shots. Interesting! The very first photo in his post looks like it might have a halva base, and I think the guess about nougat also looks likely for some of it.

Ohhh. The post was moved and I just found it.


These pictures are not for Turkish sweets and such is availabe in a much wider number of countries.


These sweets are made of two basic mixes namely:


1- Nougat and more specifically Nougatine. Nougat includes egg whites while Nougatine does not use egg whites and is thus harder and more brittle (Sugar+glucose+corn syrup}


2- Jelly. Originally the jelly was red grapes (pectine factor) based and we still have only the color and not the flavour. Thanks to commercialisation,


- Nuts: The nuts are any nuts you can think off with the exception of walnuts.


- Color very unfortunately is food coloring. The yellow should have been a mix of saffron and turmeric.


These are not lukum or halva - halwa or loukumia...etc.


Very unfortunatly, the taste is lost and you are left with teeth damages.

The original version was indeed very yummy.


Probably Darienne Apple leather is much tastier.
