A while ago I did a post on koeksisters http://food.rumtumtiggs.co.za/koeksisters/that are one of my hubby’s favourite treats and I was overwhelmed by your responses to it. One of my readers actually contacted me on Twitter to say that she had made it for her dad and he loved it. That kind of feedback warms my heart as I get the sense that I’m doing something good here and making a difference.

Another of my hubby’s favourite treats is Turkish Delight. He is more of a traditionalist preferring the rose flavour vs the many other flavours you get these days and when I found this recipe on the Spatula Magazine site http://www.yuppiechef.co.za/spatula/how-to-make-turkish-delight/ with step by step instructions it took a while for me to get the courage to make it. I’m probably still haunted by my attempted to make coconut ice when I was 12 years old that didn’t set. Anyway, about 2 weeks ago I summoned all my courage and set a small pot on the stove and, I’m happy to report that it was a huge success. Such a success in fact that I didn’t even get a chance to take pictures as it was devoured so quickly. That obviously meant that I had to make it again so here you go…with pictures as proof
